About the park

Situated in the space occupied previously by the Evelina Children's Hospital (1869-1976), Mint Street Park was developed as a local play space and venue for community events. It's the largest green park in Bankside and now has great links to the Adventure Playground, a community stage, a renewed play area with a great rocky climbing wall and a ball court.

A decade ago Mint Street Park was a semi-derelict open space with a reputation for crime and anti-social behaviour. BOST (Bankside Open Trust Spaces) brought together the local community, with support from Southwark Council and the then ODPM, to address the needs of key user groups including homeless people, parents and young people, all of whom were to play a role in improving the space, resulting in the current transformed park.
