Ruskin Park is in Denmark Hill in Camberwell in the London Borough of Lambeth, London, England, taking up much of its south-west quarter starting at its station. It was opened on 2 February 1907 with an area of 24 acres (10 ha) then, in 1910, 12 acres (5 ha) was added on its south-west side. These two parts are undivided. It is named after John Ruskin (1819–1900), a poet, writer and a major champion of diverse green spaces as well as of the Arts and Crafts movement, who lived near the park. He gives his name equally to a college, museum and square.
During World War I, recruits of the 21st Battalion, London Regiment (First Surrey Rifles) based at nearby Flodden Road in Camberwell, trained in the park.
