The Kennington Association is a resident-led community organisation created to facilitate communication, cooperation and foster cohesion among a diverse local population. We aim to improve local amenities, promote recreation and support the health and wellbeing of local people.

In 2013, we took over the management of Lollard Street Adventure Playground, a precious local site that had fallen prey
to council cuts. We supported the community to redevelop the adventure playground into a community hub, enabling families and their children to socialise and take part in play and sporting activities.


Our main activity is the governance of the Lollard StreetĀ Adventure Playground. Through this, we provide a stimulating, safe and exciting space for local children aged 6-16 to play freely, following their own wishes and interests. We ensure that the playground is free of charge to all who use it. In addition to our play offer we also provide food for the children attending the playground and are currently partnering with another organisation to give local families free frozen meals to take home every week.

In 2021 we opened a new community building on the site of the playground, available for localĀ groups to use. We also run an annual Secret Santa scheme in which our supporters are encouraged to donate money to help local families in need.
