Kennington Park se11 Podcast

I have put up a new podcast about Kennington Park, a green space close to my home. You can hear it by clicking this link.

Kennington Park covers fifteen acres, it was south London’s first park. During London’s lockdown it continues to provide welcome open space for flat dwellers and dog walkers, families and fitness fanatics, nature lovers and casual walkers, in short everyone looking for a beautiful outside space to exercise.
