Alfred Salter Playground

Posted on 13th December 2010 in Campaigns, Maps, Open Spaces

Another children’s play area targeted by Thames Water as part of their ‘super sewer’ project is the Alfred Salter Playground in Druid Street. Named after one of the areas local hero’s, it is nestled safely within the flats where many of the children that use it live.

Attached to the entrance gate of the playground is a commemorative plaque telling us, amongst other things, that Dr Salter “devoted his life to improving living conditions in Bermondsey”, how wonderful it would be if today’s engineers, planners and developers had this as a guiding principle before laying pen to paper. Let the children play!
