Sheen Common

Fife Road, London, SW14 7EL Map

Part of the common is managed as a recreation ground, while the rest is peaceful woodland.

About the park

Recreation facilities include:

  • Two football pitches
  • Bowling green
  • Cricket square (leased to a local club)
  • Four tennis courts 

The rest of the site is woodland that is popular with dog walkers and bird watchers alike and connects with Richmond Park at Bog Gate.

The woodland is now managed to encourage wildlife on the site - foxes and numerous bird species inhabit this area and there is a small seasonal pond. The freehold is owned by the National Trust. 

Visiting the park

Sheen Common is accessible at all times. The nearest train stations are North Sheen and Mortlake, and the area is also served by the bus routes 33, 337, 493 and 969.
