Welcome to the Potters Fields Park blog. This is where we give you general news on what is happening on the park and you can hear from Albert the Pug, our head gardener’s dog. You can also subscribe to our quarterly newsletter at the bottom of the page to get regular updates.

Historical OS maps of park

Southwark Council have kindly shared with us the historical Ordnance Survey maps of the park from 1860 to 2002.

As you can see there has been quite a change. If you’d like to find out more about the park’s history you can also take a look at our history section here.

Albert says – donate this Christmas

Albert the pug here, Merry Woofmas to you all!!

You’ll be pleased to hear I’m donning my Santa outfit again this year to become ‘Santa Paws’ in order to collect toys and treats for my mates at the Blue Cross charity.

Now I’m a lucky pug, as you can probably tell from my belly. I get lots and lots of nice treats, especially at Christmas. But that’s not been the case for my mates who are now being looked after by the Blue Cross.

So please give what you can to Potters Fields Park and my dad Ian who’s the head gardener. They’ll be collecting the toys and treats until the week before Christmas when I’ll personally deliver all the goodies to the local Blue Cross centre in Victoria. They can be handed to the gardeners on the park or you can contact the park office to drop off.

Thanks in advance. Ho ho ho and Merry Woofmas!!!
