  • Great park, lots to do for all. Excellent cricket pitch, there's two of them. The pagoda is beautiful and very nice to chill in the evening close to the Thames. The central path is great to walk during a drizzle. Fun and fair during the summer for kids. Pets paradise to walk. The boating area is really cool with a Ben&Jerrry's just outside. The club is brilliantly priced for tennis, track and gym. There's a very nice kids zoo. Car parking facility, make sure to keep a check on the timer or you're going to get a ticket. Security is good too. Very safe place at any time of the day.
  • I love Battersea Park. It has it all, even crazy golf. I spent a romantic afternoon here recently, one I won't forget. Battersea Park makes it happen. Protect our parks. They're my favourite part of London.
