Stretching across Tooting, Balham and Streatham is 92 acres of greenery (except when it’s covered in snow) that is Tooting Common. It provides a quieter experience than its neighbour, Clapham Common, as it is nestled within the residential area. But that is not to say that it is bereft of action. The common is enjoyed by every age, gender and species, whether it is playing football, throwing a frisbee, jogging, walking or simply basking under the winter sun.
Tooting Common not only offers manicured lawns but also an area of woods. Perfect for those who want a bit of rough nature walk. You can also go horse riding and seasonal fishing in some of the ponds (perhaps during warmer weather though).
Londoners love to spend their time outdoors even if it is within the comforts of their home. And with such a diverse space like Tooting Common in your backyard, who would want their own garden?
