Doggy Splash Day 8th October 2017

Doggy Splash Day 8th October 2017

The pool up on the top of Streatham Common is drained at the end of each season, but on the very last day – the dogs get to play! Bring your dogs.

Hot  on the heels of Scruffs, our dog loving community have one more treat for you all. Its great fun for both pups and humans, and a great chance to make new acquaintances and see  your furbags rediscover their silly side.

The kids have had their fun for the summer…now its our furry kids turn!

12 noon to 5pm – at the paddling pool at the top of the common.
Stalls and raffle to raise funds to help SCCOOP keep the paddling pool open next year.

This event is organised entirely by volunteers – give as much support as you can. Even if you dont have a dog, come and join in the fun!



Streatham Common Playground Update

Streatham Common Playground Update

Lambeth Council are pleased to announce that works to the New Streatham Common Playground,  has commenced and will be completed by mid-December. The playground will be closed throughout the duration of the works. An alternative playground during this period is located in Streatham Vale Park.

The new playground will consist of a variety of play equipment suitable for use by toddlers through to pre-teens. As well as the new play equipment the landscaping will be refreshed to include improved access with an additional gate and more trees and shrubs. The design will allow for open spaces for independent play, picnic tables and extra benches.

The completed project will provide an exciting new play area for local families to enjoy in an environment sympathetic to the rest of the Common.


FoSC was instrumental in getting the new playground planning through. If you would like to join us as a volunteer, we always need people to help us develop ideas, creating a sustainable future for all users of the common.
