Elephant Springs - an urban oasis crafted from water, rock and sand

Elephant Park is a brand-new neighbourhood and community just a short distance from Elephant & Castle’s rail and underground stations. There are new homes, shops and restaurants, and pocket parks to sit and relax in, all centred around a new two-acre park with shady, mature trees and the natural play area, Elephant Springs.

There is a wide range of places to eat and drink, offering cuisines from across the world such as: Ethiopian, Japanese, Korean, American, Italian, and over the next couple of months there will also be Mexican, Chinese and Latin American restaurants and cafes opening too. Many of the businesses have come from the local area, and are all contributing to Elephant Park becoming a vibrant, buzzing destination to head for at any time of day.

The new two-acre park includes many mature London plan trees that give shade in the summer, and provide a richness of habitats for wildlife. Stretch out on the grass with a picnic, or meet a friend for a coffee on one of the many benches and seating areas dotted around the space.
