Expressions of interest to identify suitable operator to assume the operation of swimming lake at Beckenham Place Park
South East London

Beckenham Place Park is South East London’s largest park and has benefitted from a £6m investment over the past 18 months. The jewel of the beautiful, historic landscape is the newly recreated Georgian lake, which now supports open water swimming.

Lewisham Council is seeking expressions of interest to identify a suitable operator to assume the operation of the swimming lake at Beckenham Place Park, on a lease basis.

Beckenham Place Park now attracts around 750,000 visits a year. Park visitors enjoy activities in the mansion, the new playground, the stableyard café, the extensive formal gardens and the swathes of ancient woodland. Increasingly, visitors also flock to swim in the lake. In the summer months, many of these are local people seeking a refreshing dip, and not seasoned open water swimmers.

The Council seeks an operator experienced in running outdoor swimming venues in urban areas. The operator also has the opportunity to offer other boating activities on the lake alongside swimming.

Initial expressions of interest are sought via responses to specific questions in the EOI pack, as well as background information on the organisation and a summary of the proposed approach to operations on the lake and health and safety.

Please contact vince.buchanan@lewisham.gov.uk and alison.taylor@lewisham.gov.uk for an EOI pack. All expressions of interest should be submitted by midnight on Sunday 8th December. Following receipt and review of expressions of interest potential operators will be contacted for subsequent discussions around the next steps.
