Save Ruskin Park Paddling Pool


For years the Ruskin Park Paddling Pool has provided a cool space in which children can splash about while families and friends get together for an ice cream and just relax. But due to Lambeth Council Funding cuts the pool will close this year unless maintenance funds can be found.

A community group has formed in conjunction with the Friends of Ruskin Park to fundraise £5,000 to keep the pool open this summer.

There many ways to help:

  • Join our Facebook group: Save Ruskin Park Paddling Pool” and be kept up to date with funding and progress, you can offer to volunteer painting if you like!
  • Display an Urban Village board outside your property and Urban Village will donate £100 per board to the fund.
  • Take your donation to Gaia and Magda at the Ruskin Park Café
  • Join our Pool Party, planned for the grand opening on the late May bank holiday
  • Share the campaign via social media, facebook, twitter and help us grow support
  • Join the Friends of Ruskin Park
