Kew Green

Kew Green, Richmond, TW9 3BH Map

This village green is a popular spot for both community and sporting events, especially during the summer. 

About the park

Within walking distance of the River Thames, the green acts as a good starting point for a rambling walk along the towpath. There is also a cricket pitch which is used frequently during the summer.

At the North East corner of Kew Green is Kew Pond. This old horse pond is now an attractive local feature thanks to volunteers from the Friends of Kew Pond who planted the island and pond edges, creating habitat for a range of water birds. The water level is managed by a sluice gate that allows river water to fill the pond via an underground channel during high spring tide.

The Kew Society

If you would like to become involved in the park or find out about the projects The Kew Society are working on, then please visit Kew Society website.
