Features of Larkhall Park include a play area, sports pitches, café, tennis and athletics.
Although Larkhall Park opened in 1973, plans for a public open space here dated from around 1943 and it formed part of the County of London Plan to provide improved housing, transport and open spaces for Londoners. The LCC began purchasing land in 1952, and the park's completion was planned in three phases. In 1971 some 5.25 hectares were cleared and responsibility for laying out the park transferred to Lambeth Council, who worked with local tenants to grass over the area. Temporary facilities for recreation were provided by 1973 and development of the new park began in 1974. In 2006 the park underwent major improvement works.
