One of the best park yet! Spacious and filled with great variety of interesting trees. Lovely duck pond and bridge with a boat house nearby where one can rent paddle boats. There's a cafe with toilet facility too near the children's playground. There's also low trikes to be rented out to children and adults which seems quite fun! Lovely place... More

I wonder how many of you have noticed that this cafe will rip you off if they think they can get away with it. On 11.04.2017 we bought a hotdog, sandwich, late, coke and a brownie and were charged UKP 26.00. My wife paid by credit, asked for a receipt with the breakdown but this request was brushed aside so... More

I spent Sunday afternoon here recently, it was a warm day so there were plenty of people around. It is not a good place to drive to as there is very limited parking even in the surrounding streets. Luckily I live locally so I walked. The park is well kept and has a large playground for children and wilderness area... More

The park itself is gorgeous brilliant place to chill but make sure you take your own food and drink as The Park Kitchen should be made illegal for their extortionate prices.. £4.75 for a bacon roll, £6.50 for a cheese burger, £8.00 for 2 coffees bottle of water and a can of coke, and with the water fountains not working...

Dulwich is the poshest part of South London and this is a lovely park that borders lots of other green spaces and not far from the pubs and restaurants of Lordship Lane. There is a mix of spaces, with cared-for lawns and gardens next to overgrown, wild areas and wooded sections, along with a lake. Dog-walkers everywhere but it's a... More

As others have noted, this is a well-kept and well-loved park by locals. I walked across it after visiting the Dulwich Picture Gallery en route to the Horniman Gardens. It was a lovely October Sunday afternoon. Lots of families and couples in the park. It has a large pond and a boardwalk along the east end, which is a nice... More

A typical town park with a lake and playing fields. Autumn colours are nice at the minute. Walk along the boardwalk when the frost is still on the ground and see the wildfowl

Great park. Beautifully kept. Watch out for all the bikes though. Too many obstacles. Lovely place. Very posh people walking around and pretending to use the out doors gym. Great to watch and laugh.

Dulwich is my local park. I walk the dog there daily on the special dog walking path which follows the park's perimeter. I go there for a coffee at the cafe. My son goes there to hire the recumbent bicycles. We plan to go there to take a boat out on the lake. We used to go there for the... More

My family frequently visit Dulwich Park to walk our dog, ride bikes or skateboards or skates, or rent recumbent bikes from the bike hire shop inside the park. The park is large with a lovely roadway (without traffic except occasional disabled access) looping around the entire park. There are exercise stations around the park and a playground for very young... More
