Bramber Green returns to Judd Street

A popular Kings Cross park has reverted to its traditional name as part of wide-ranging landscape improvements.

Originally constructed on a Second World War bomb damaged housing site, Bramber Green was created in the early 1960s to accompany a block of flats after which it was named, Bramber House.

Councillor Adam Harrison, Cabinet Member for Improving Camden's Environment
“As part of a previous refurbishment in the 90’s the site was renamed Judd Street Open Space. Despite this, the site continued to be referred to as Bramber Green by many.

“During our recent public engagement, there were a number of requests from residents to revert back to its original name. What better way to celebrate the park’s local identify and refurbishments, than to re-name the site, Bramber Green?”

The improvements undertaken include; creating a new pedestrian entrance to the park that allows better movement through the area, a larger open grass area for sitting and picnicking and new play equipment with additional seating.

The improvements undertaken include; creating a new pedestrian entrance to the park that allows better movement through the area, a larger open grass area for sitting and picnicking and new play equipment with additional seating.

One of the most important changes is the introduction of a diverse range of outdoor gym equipment for all ages and abilities.

Councillor Jonathan Simpson, Cabinet Member for Culture and the Voluntary Sector
“The new outdoor gym is a perfect alternative to more traditional indoor gyms. It is free and easy to use, with the equipment being designed especially for outdoor use.

“Camden’s Sport & Physical Activity Service has also been busy organising training for local volunteers to learn how to best use the equipment and encourage others to do so, and it is planned to continue to build and support this community network.”
