“Great place to people watch and have a picnic with friends”
Review of Clapham Common

Clapham Common
Ranked #502 of 1,679 things to do in London

I live just off the common and use it all the time. Great for running, picnics, walks round the little lakes/ponds.
They should use it for more uses other than South West Four festival and the select few other events... Every weekend should be something different!!

This is a good place to go to exercise the dogs or children as there is plenty of grass & safe areas for them to run around. There is a safe enclosed play area for the children with toilets nearby. The paddling pool is over by the church & must be lovely for the children in good weather. There are plenty of seats if you just want to rest & read a book. There is a little cafe with outdoor seating where you can purchase ice creams etc.
There are plenty of little shops & eateries all around the common which are worth taking a look at.

I went for a walk on CC for the first time Sunday evening. It was dark so could not see all it had to offer, however there was much happening.
Families enjoying their fireworks, dog walkers, commuters on they was home from a hard days work, joggers couples; you get it. I was surprised t
How many lovely old buildings are in the park and how easy it is to access from the surrounding roads! Will certaily visit again in the day light. Recommended.

Clapham common is fairly local to me so I often head down there on sunny days. To be honest there are nicer parks in London but if you are in the area on a warm day it is well worth grabbing an ice cream, taking a book and enjoying some sun.

A couple of thing that annoy me though are firstly the litter, this isn't pick up as frequently as it would be in a more central park and secondly the paddling pool never seems to have water in it!
