The Park within Elephant Park wins a coveted Golden Pineapple at the 2022 Pineapple Awards

We are delighted to announce that Gillespies and Lendlease picked up a coveted Golden Pineapple at the 2022 Developer Magazine Pineapple Awards for Best Public Space for The Park within Elephant Park.

The park is a spectacular green oasis at the heart of the ground-breaking revitalisation of Elephant & Castle by Lendlease and Southwark Council. At 2 acres, it’s an inclusive and sustainable community space featuring expansive lawns, colourful rain gardens, the landmark water playscape, Elephant Springs, and pedestrian walkways nestled within naturalistic planting. The park offers everyone living, visiting or working in the area unique and unforgettable social and recreational experiences and an opportunity to slow down, relax and connect with nature.

It's wonderful to see the judges recognising the significant contribution this space is delivering not just for the Elephant and Castle community but for all those visiting the area seeking a closer connection with nature.

The wider Elephant Park project also scooped the award for ‘Place in Progress’.
