Wandle Park is nice to visit for a lunchtime walk. It isn't too busy, and there are many activities dotted around the park for exercise enthusiasts and kids. Really nice green spot in the middle of the 'concrete jungle'.

Good place for a short walk. Quiet and good to go around and enjoy the sunny days. Go and enjoy as looks safe.

Do not recall seeing any signs regarding both matters, but have seen people with disposable as well as "usual" BBQs; alcohol has been seen to be consumed at the park.
