The park is the centrepiece of Elephant Park, the revitalisation of Elephant & Fortress by Lendlease and Southwark Council. It is a two-acre inclusive and sustainable neighborhood area with lawns, rain gardens, walkways and a spectacular water playscape, Elephant Springs.
The park is formed round 27 mature timber and an extra 19 new timber, chosen for resilience to local weather change, and ecological worth.
