The most common questions we are asked relate to the barbecues, bouncy castles and fishing. The Parks Department have advised us that:
Barbecues are only permitted within Sutton Council Parks on the barbecue stands provided. Barbecues of any kind are not permitted in any other part of the park. Barbecue stands are provided at Beddington Park and Roundshaw Park.
Bouncy Castles are not permitted.
The Bye-laws state that “No person shall in any waterway cast a net or line for the purpose of catching fish or other animals.”
Picnic and BBQ Area in Beddington Park
The Friends and the Council together have provided a Picnic and BBQ area for the use of the general public. The facilities include seating, BBQ stands for cooking with bins for used BBQ trays and extra litter bins. Additional trees have also been planted with a donation from the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association, to give some shade for the area.
The area is near the Café, the toilets, the children's playground, and the river.
The Park receives thousands of visitors each year and the one facility it lacked is anywhere to sit and eat, other than the few seats dotted here and there. When the weather is good people sometimes bring small BBQ's with them, but please note that BBQs are only permitted on the fixed BBQ stands. It is not possible to book the BBQ stands, they are available on a first come first served basis..
The Park benefits visitors from far and wide, and we are delighted that we have been able to provide them with an added facility to enjoy.
