Bermondsey Spa Gardens is a park in Bermondsey, London. It is located on Grange Road, SE1 3AH. The park has been included in the recent and ongoing regeneration of the Bermondsey Spa area. The 4.5-acre (18,000 m2) park, with improvements designed by the architects Broadway Malyan, is intended to act as a focal point for the surrounding area.

The park was closed for redevelopment in 2005 and then re-opened in March 2006. The £2 million redevelopment furnished the park with new lighting, signage, bins, paths, plants and play equipment. In addition, the Ellen Brown Bermondsey Play Centre was built. This building is shared by a Sure Start centre and Southwark Play Services.

Overlooking Bermondsey Spa Gardens is the former Bermondsey public library, a Victorian red-brick building from 1890, which has recently been restored. It is now home to the Kagyu Samye Dzong Tibetan Buddhist Centre.
