£4.9 million has been spent to regenerate the park which the lake is situated in, this was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Not only is there a lake but a new wet woodland, a BMX track and skate park, new bridge over the Ravensbourne River, kids play areas and a visitor hub and education centre. A further £2m was contributed by Lewisham council. Cllr Sophie McGeevor said the park “looked amazing” and “We have just got the latest health figures for Lewisham and 38 per cent of year six pupils are overweight or obese”. Swimmers will have to book online and pay electronically when they turn up, she said.
