The park is essentially a large triangle of green. There are a fair amount of trees and plenty of open space. The ground is a bit hard but there is a pretty good lawn (but not the cosiest). No other plants (unless you count daisies).

Add-Ons (“Beyond The Greenery”)

Nothing else to this park other than a festival now and then. No amenities or cafes but it’s a stones throw from the high street (at the narrow end)

Although it’s sparse, somewhat typical in size and landscaping and offers little else, I sort of like it. The way it widens out as you walk through it and the diverse mix of people. Worth a visit on the hipster trail of London.

Tips, Tricks & Traps

Summer is best in the common if you want music events or whiffs of hedonism. Bring a Frisbee or you might get bored.
