Richard MacVicar Adventure Playground


Richard MacVicar Adventure Playground, Deptford is one of the oldest of its kind with some of the tallest play structures in London. In 2015 the playground was re-named the Richard MacVicar Adventure Playground in honour of ‘Mac,’ a much loved and long serving manager of the site from 1978-2012. His ethos was to “create positive memories of childhood through creative play” which lives on through the current dedicated and passionate team.
