Myatt's Field Park - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Panorama taken in late May 2015 showing Myatt's Field Park in a residential area of Lambeth. My favourite part of the park is the small wild area that contains a pond, it has been fun watching the tadpoles change into frogs over time.

Myatt's Field Park is a Grad II listed Victorian park in the London borough of Lambeth. It lies in a residential area close to Camberwell, Oval and Kennington Park. The park is named after Joseph Myatt, a tenant gamer who grew various produce here for markets in the 19th century. The park was donated to public lands in 1889 and still contains many of the Victorian features including the band stand, summer house and footpaths. It was designed by Fanny Rollo Wilkinson, one of the first professional female landscape gardeners.
Today it is widely used by members of the local communities and includes:
The park has been awarded 1st Place in the The London in Bloom Awards - 'Edible London' category. Maintenance of the park is greatly aided by the Myatt's Fields Park Project Group, formed of local residents and park users.
