East Sheen Common, also known as Sheen Common, is an area of public open space in East Sheen in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It is adjacent to Richmond Park and separated from it by a brick wall[1] which forms the park's boundary. A gate, Bog Gate, provides pedestrian access between the park and the common. Since 1908, East Sheen Common has been owned by The National Trust.[2] It is currently leased to Richmond upon Thames Borough Council.[1]

East Sheen Common covers 75 acres (30ha),[2] consisting of woodland, a cricket field, tennis courts and a bowling green,[1] and is a surviving part of the much greater area of common land that existed in the local area before Richmond Park was created.[1]

Sheen Park Cricket Club[1] play matches on East Sheen Common's cricket field,[3] which is also a venue for Ibstock Place School cricket matches.[4]
