Location information:

Rush Common, along with Max Roach Park, forms a valuable green corridor running between Brixton to Streatham. Rush Common is made up of a series of open green spaces which run along the eastern side of Brixton Hill (A23) between Streatham and Brixton.

There are four main sections of Rush Common maintained as public open space. The northernmost section, next to Brixton Town Centre, is the Brixton Orchard, created by a partnership of We Are Brixton Village & Market Row, Brixton BID and Urban Growth London.

Next south is the Rush Common Woodland Walk, which forms a pleasant, tree-covered walk with a children’s playground, comfortable seating and wildlife-friendly tree and shrub planting, created with the help of residents on the adjacent St. Matthew’s Estate.

South of the Woodland Walk is ‘Pencil Park’, which was created and is managed by residents of Endymion Road. Furthest south is a large area of open land adjacent to the Roupell Park Estate, with areas of meadow grasslands and impressive mature trees.

Opening Times:

All four areas of Rush Common managed as public open space are open 24 hours a day.
