London’s talking about Elephant Springs
If you’re a resident of one of our apartments at Elephant Park, you’ll have heard all about Elephant Springs. The newest natural play area and beauty spot in Elephant Castle is now welcoming visitors from near and far to relax in its calm surroundings.
It’s a place where rock, water and landscaped earth come together to create a natural oasis, nestled amongst trees and green spaces within the wider Elephant Park. And it’s safe to say that word has got out.
