Coulsdon Common is a 51 hectare (127 acre) public open space located in south Croydon. It forms part of a larger area of open countryside within the London green belt that links London with the wider countryside of Surrey.

Coulsdon Common lies in the North Downs Natural Area and virtually all of it is a Site of Nature Conservation Importance (Site of Metropolitan Interest) for its chalk grassland and wood pasture habitats.

This mosaic of open grassland, scrub and woodland contributes to an attractive landscape nestled amongst the residential housing nearby.

Registered charity no. 232989
