  • Visitor Information

Acres and acres of green land - 221 to be precise - lie within Tooting Common in the heart of south London, stretching between Balham, Streatham and Tooting. The park is a hive of activity with walkers, horse riders and even fishermen finding their own space to enjoy nature. People of all ages flock there, especially in the warmer months, to see the ducks, picnic and sunbathe and play sports - there are tennis courts, an athletics track and the lovely Tooting Bec Lido as well as lots of wide open grassland to set up your own summer game of rounders.
