Leake Street Pocket Park

  • Our Story

    Derelict, dumping ground, drug use and devoid are the 4 ‘D’s of the Leake Street Entranceway off Lower Marsh.  Our vision is to transform this space from local cesspit into a community space that local people and visitors can enjoy.  We want to significantly soften the landscape through the use of interesting features as well as greening so that it welcomes a number of uses planned such as market stalls, cultural and social activities. 
    The project is a part of the wider regeneration project on Lower Marsh, with Lambeth Council committing £50K to the park and the GLA committing a further £40K.  Suffice to say we should be able to produce a pretty nice space with these contributions.

    We have a concept design which has been put together by local architects named uncommon – we are also working with the landowner, Network Rail to help support the scheme by offering a leasing arrangement for the local Business Improvement District, Waterloo Quarter.  The idea is the Waterloo Quarter will look after the space after its built – looking after the cleaning and management of any planting we introduce to the space.
