Streatham Common is a large open space at the southern tip of Lambeth. It offers amazing views and has areas of woodland, grassland, wild flower meadows and a picnic area. It also contains The Rookery, a small and enchanting formal garden.

Wildlife features include the largest areas of acid grassland and woodland in Lambeth, which is why part of the Common has been declared a Local Nature Reserve.

The Common is a popular place for walking, jogging and sports as well as being an important stop on the Capital Ring, a long-distance circular walking route that goes around Greater London.

Streatham Common Playground Upgrade Works

Following from the consultation in 2015, the Friends of Streatham Common, SCCoop and Lambeth Council are now running a public consultation on updated design by Chris Blandford Associates.

We have secured the funds for the playground upgrade works and the aim is to complete the implementation by Summer 2017. If you would like to comment on the plans for a new playground like the one shown on the this proposed plan then please add your voice to the consultation before the closing date of midday 19 December 2016.

Please take a look at the plans that have been proposed and then complete this survey

You can also visit us at the Drop-in session on Thursday 15 December 2016 at Streatham Common Sainsbury’s where information will be provided from 10am to 6pm.
