History of the park
Belair House was built in 1785 in the style of, or possibly by, the architect Robert Adam. Its grounds included an artificial lake made by damming the River Effra. The landscape is Grade II listed, and listed structures in the park include the park lodge and entrance gate. In 1965, Belair became a public park when the London Borough of Southwark was formed.
