Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens - Review
If you want to soak in the beauty of nature and make the most of a sunny day, the Vauxhall Gardens in Kennington is for you. With a history that dates back to 1785, the Gardens are one of the most iconic parks in the city of London. There was a time when this 'pleasure garden' was accessed by boats via the River Thames but now you can get here by tube or road. The open garden is a visual treat and the abundant space is ideal if you want to plan a picnic too. The cafe on site offers some great refreshments and you can add to the enjoyment of your trip by visiting the Vauxhall City Farms.

Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, London Reviews
Easy access, overall a wide open space with decent layout for groups to hang out, play group games. Plenty of benches. Basketball court flood lights don't always come on in evening and if they do a few of them are not working. Could benefit from having a small training area also for locals. A decent space overall but not being used to its potential.
The Urban Farm is nice, and the Tea House and playgrounds at the north end of the Garden are pleasant and well maintained. The rest of the Pleasure Garden seemed to be filled with trash and public illicit drug use. Based on other reviews I thought it would be a nice place to bring my children for a day in the sun. Other than the fenced in playground near The Black Dog pub (which is also nice), this is not a good family locale.
Nice area. Very trendy looking. Love how the pub next door lends you a blanket and drinks in plastic glasses for you to have an outdoor picnic in this friendly lovely gardens. Oh and there's a petting zoo here too. All within a short walking distance of Vauxhall tube station, Vauxhall bridge and the MI5 building.
What a wonderful find, tucked away behind the main road, the train lines, within a housing estate and a "stones throw" from Vauxhall bridge (south side). Most of all - it's free entry!! 😀. Lots of different animals and kids can get up close and personal without any danger; petting and holding sessions are capable, especially during school holidays. If you're in the area and want to keep y children amused for an hour give it a try.
Good food with a nice range of teas. An ideal place to meet and pass the time away.
