Hounslow heath has reduced in size over the decades and from 4000 acres to now 200 acres. The area is open all year round and has heath areas and some flowers and shrubs, and many walj there dods here. There is a huge car boot sale on Sundays very close by.

Large green open space supposedly linked to stories of Dick Turpin and highway men. It is a nature reserve, with a reasonable population of adders, although they are very hard to find and see.
No toilet facilities and it does not feel very safe as it is just such a vast area with no staff on site.
Apparently it is very popular with drug users, alcoholics and doggers come sundown!

Green heath land with pathways to walk along. Some plants here but fairly basic heath land. Great place to get some fresh air or to walk your dog.

This is a perfect place to take your dogs for a great walk. There is plenty of space from the green which you can take you dog to run and play if they love their balls. Or you can take them down the long path and wonder off into the woodlands which has amazing views and can definitely spend a lot of time there.
I have been lucky enough to have spotted huge rabbits/hares, Bawean deer and foxes. But its important that you don't disturb them and put your dog on a leash if they would likely chase them.
You see lots of people doing exercises in this park (running, aerobics workouts, walking).
The only part that is disturbing is some people not picking up their litter or having a handful of men that pop to the Green to relieve themselves and not caring that there people around.

I had lived in Hounslow for 8 years when 4 years ago I came across Hounslow Heath and I absolutely adored it. I go there mostly on weekends in all seasons, especially spring, summer and autumn, and in summer I go sometimes in the evening when it is still daylight.
I love walking or riding bikes, but Hounslow town is far from a pretty site, quite dirty and also busy so Hounslow Heath is a beautiful getaway. You can either take the main paths or others that are not that marked and then you can make your ride or walk even more exciting.
There is vast amount of vegetation and some wildlife, especially birds. Lots of people take their dogs and they seem to enjoy the area lots. People also play cricket or football in a big ground.
It is quite small compared to Richmond park but if you are local and feel like escaping from the busy town without jumping in a car, this reserve will do the job.
