Richmond upon Thames parks and open spaces

The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames lies to the south west of the conurbation. A large part of the borough is taken up with parks and open spaces, including some which attract both domestic and international tourism such as Richmond Park, Bushy Park, Kew Gardens, and Hampton Court Park; because of this the Borough has more open space than any other London borough There are over 100 parks and open spaces within its boundary and 21 miles of river frontage. Many of the open spaces are the erstwhile village greens.

The main borough-managed parks and open spaces are:
* "Barnes Common": local nature reserve, open grassland, trees and woodland
* "Barnes Green": focal point of Barnes village
* "Carlisle Park"
* "Ham Common"
* "Kew Green"
* "Old Deer Park" Crown property, leased to Richmond Borough
* "Palewell Common", Sheen

* "Richmond Green" Crown property, leased to Richmond Borough
* "Sheen Common"
* "The Riverside": following the River Thames from Old Deer Park to Petersham Meadows under Richmond Bridge
