Some lovely sheltered, tree lined walks and open spaces for a dog to run around and chase balls. Very pretty in the summer with lots of space to park and walk.

I have often driven past Streatham Common and thought was an uninspiring place it is. But then I was advised to visit The Rookery, at the top of the Common and that visit has radically changed my opinion. Set in the grounds of the house...More

I spend a lot of weekends sitting in the sun with my friends here. The kids park is very popular if that’s what you need and the rookery is like a secret garden. I recommend bringing a blanket, drinks and good company!

Close to our home home, we always enjoy the common. Good variety of open parkland space, trees, woodland, well marked paths and a formal garden. Great tea shop at the top.

This is a hidden gem at the summit of the common. The gardens are simply beautiful - it is like happening on a huge private garden which is open to the public.

It's a large common, great for kites, joggers, dog walkers ect. I sometimes go just for a walk by myself just to get out if I'm working from home lots. The flower gardens are lovely and the lavender is beautiful in early summer.

Streatham common is an attractive green space in South London. The grass on the Northern and Western section is maintained and dotted with trees. It looks very pretty sloping upwards towards the rookery from the A23. On summer weekends it is crowded with people, flying...More
