The Dog Kennel Hill Adventure Playground has been established since the early 1970's and is a free open access adventure playground for children and young people between the ages of 5-16.
For over 40 years dkhap has given children and young people the opportunity to play freely and take risk in a safe and stimulating environment with qualified staff on hand to supervise.
The playground is based in East Dulwich South London and is run independently by a management committee made up of local people.
The playground receives its core funding from Southwark Council (Children's Services) and also relies financially on its own fundraising events, applying for grants and donations.
We believe that all children have the right to play irrespective of their race, culture, ability or gender and through the many facets of play, all children can achieve there full potential.
Our desire is to continue to offer this high level of service to our community so please visit us after school or during holiday periods.
In Summer 2018 we received planning permission from Southwark Council for a new building. Thank you to everyone who donated and wrote statements of support. We are now entering phase 2 which is to raise the money for a new building.
To develop these plans, in the first instance, we will need a Quantitative Surveyor. Further along in the process we will need Architects and a Structural Engineer.
We are hoping to have as much of the work done as possible pro bono, so please pass this on to your families, friends and colleagues who might be interested in helping us in the next stage.
Once again, an enormous heartfelt thank you to everyone who donated, whether in cash or kind, towards our Crowdfunding campaign.
We are also looking for people to join our management committee who have general committee skills and specific skills related to this process.
We look forward to seeing you at the playground or hearing from you soon.
Patrick and Kate
