Welcome to Dulwich Park

Dulwich Park is of its original Victorian layout, which is flat with large open spaces. This is coupled with more recent additions, including the public bodyweight equipment, ensuring no two sessions are the same. This is a great park for both Military Fitness classes and also Walkfit sessions as it has extensive pathways making travel around the park a breeze.


Paul Derham

Park Manager

Paul Derham

Paul served as a section Commander for the Royal Marines Commando Reserve and was deployed around the world, from the desert to the jungle and everywhere in between. He enjoys getting to know the members, understanding their goals and targets, working hard during the sessions to help them achieve and, ultimately, having a great time. In his spare time he loves being in the mountains, climbing and canoeing, and just being outdoors in general. Come on down to the park for some serious fun with Paul and his team.
