Size (acreage)1300

'The 1300 acres of Elmbridge Commons are a rich source of enjoyment for visitors, providing a superb area for a leisurely stroll, horse riding, bird watching, dog walking and picnicking. The commons consist of a wide variety of habitats including woodlands, ponds and heathland, and are awash with colour. The value of these habitats has led to most of the Esher Commons being designated a site of special scientific interest.'
