The Rosendale Playing Fields are a delightful open space and situated in West Dulwich, South East London. They have only recently been opened up for community use booking, having previously been in the hands of Lambeth and used exclusively for children.
Sports Facilities at Rosendale Playing Fields include:
- 5 Tennis Courts
- 2 Netball Courts
- 2 Junior Football Pitches
- 1 Mult-use court
The two 11 a side football pitches are designed exclusively for community football and tend to be used on saturdays. They are slightly sloping however there are plans to level them in the future.
There five tennis courts are also marked for netball and are in good condition. When they're not used by local schools they are available to the public and can be booked via the OpenPlay booking system. Any revenue made from the courts will be ploughed straight back in to improving the facilities at the Rosendale Playing Fields so the more people who play, the better it gets!
There are changing facilities available but there are no showers, just toilets.
Finally the Rosendale Playing Fields are located between the South Circular, Thurlow Park Road (A205) and Norwood Road (A215). There is no car park however free parking is available outside the recreation ground along Rosendale Road.
If you're travelling to the Rosendale pitches by train, the nearest station is West Dulwich which is approximately 10 minutes walk away. Alternatively Herne Hill is also 15 mins walk with more train options to central London.
