A short bus journey from Hammersmith, Wormwood Scrubs is definitely worth a visit on the weekends. It is the largest open space in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and one of the largest commons in London, with 200 acres of green space. With a small woodland walkway providing some shelter on those hotter days. There is also lots of wildlife you probably wouldn’t expect to see in London, such as common lizards! It is the perfect place to explore with your pup and perfect for a game of frisbee or fetch! It is tucked away from the city so you can definitely escape there.
Little Wormwood Scrubs
Just next to Wormwood Scrubs is Little Wormwood Scrubs, as you can probably guess, it is a smaller park. This is a great place to go for a shorter walk, and it is much more exciting for the children as there are plenty of play areas to keep them entertained whilst you play with your pup.
