The Rookery is an attractive, formally landscaped area with an ornamental pond, flower and herbaceous beds, and a rock garden with streams. It has a café and is surrounded by Streatham Common. The Rookery is not just a formal garden: it also has areas of woodland that are important for biodiversity and environmental education, and contains a new community garden in part of the old depot and nursery area.
The Rookery is also one of Lambeth's 12 Green Flag Award-winning parks. The Green Flag Award recognises the considerable achievements made by everybody to provide the community with a green space we can all be proud of.
