Join the many families who are enjoying Fishponds fields in Hebdon Road, off Upper Tooting Road, now they’re open every day for the summer (8am-6pm until 6th September). The fields are an oasis of peace and calm with huge green expanses for play, picnics, kick about sport and more. Kids are enjoying the new play equipment. It’s a great place for all ages. Thank you again, WBC.

Please spread the word, and if you’ve not dropped in already, come and enjoy.

Fishponds after the summer

Why stop on 6th September? The fields are proving their worth as an open space supporting heath and wellbeing in a densely populated part of Tooting that sorely needs green spaces. Take a look at the vision for Fishponds’ future from Forever Fishponds, the local grouping pressing to make the fields a year round community asset open to all.
