Christmas New Year 2021/2022

On behalf of all the Conservators and Staff on Wimbledon and Putney Commons, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We are expecting the Commons to be very busy over the holiday period, particularly with more and more people meeting outside again. It’s important that everyone can enjoy their visit to the Commons and so would ask you all to be kind and courteous to each other – we’ve all had yet another tough year.

If you need any assistance at any time, do contact the Ranger’s Office and our Duty Officers will be happy to help. Please see below for contact details and all other important information for your visit over the festive season:


Windmill Car Park:  Open every from 7am to 5pm every day

Springwell: Open every day

Richardson Evans Memorial Playing Fields: Open 9am to 4pm but closed on Christmas Day


The Ranger’s Office will be open from 9am to 5pm every day apart from Christmas Day. 

When the Office is closed, including Christmas Day, a Duty Officer will be on call in case of emergencies.  They can be contacted on 020 8788 7655


Golf will NOT be played on the following days:

Saturday 25th December
Sunday 26th December
Monday 27th December
Tuesday 28th December
Saturday 1st January
Monday 3rd January

On all other days golf will be in play so do please take care around the course.   All visitors are asked to please respect the hard work of the Greenkeepers and keep off the tees and greens to prevent them from being damaged. Some areas have been roped off to try and keep the general wear and tear to a minimum.


You can expect to see horses out all over the holidays so do take care if you are walking near horserides particularly if you have children or dogs with you.  If you are not sure how your dogs will behave around horses, do please put them on a lead until the group has passed.


PS! Don't forget about our 150th Anniversary Picture Competition - get that camera out and get snapping!

Thank you!
