“Small but lovely green space to escape in”

Berrylands Nature Reserve
Reviewed 20 April 2018

I love visiting Berrylands Nature Reserve (officially recorded as Raeburn Open Space Local Nature Reserve) with my family and just alone to relax. This nature reserve was neglected for many years having been declared a local nature reserve in 1992 but there is now a project (2017 - 2020) to restore and enhance this gorgeous little space hidden away in the suburbia of Berrylands. The Tolworth Brook (also known as the Surbiton Stream) is the life blood of this nature reserve and this year (2018) has had some great improvements made to it; ripping concrete sides and bases out, add wooden berms and deflectors, improving the flow, naturalising the banks and adding a new bridge (should be installed by May 2018). The Tolworth Brook joins the Hogsmill.

As I type this, they are digging a dipping pond too and creating a nature trail. Really great to see the community come together, volunteering to improve this site along with the support of the Environment Trust and a grant from Thames Water. Don't expect a zoo or massive nature reserve but it's a lovely spot for some peace & quiet in a built up area or for a short walk with the family.
