Recreation facilities include:
The rest of the site is woodland that is popular with dog walkers and bird watchers alike and connects with Richmond Park at Bog Gate.
The woodland is now managed to encourage wildlife on the site - foxes and numerous bird species inhabit this area and there is a small seasonal pond. The freehold is owned by the National Trust.
Sheen Common is accessible at all times. The nearest train stations are North Sheen and Mortlake, and the area is also served by the bus routes 33, 337, 493 and 969.
