Looking for the perfect picnic spot to reunite with loved ones following the restriction ease? Then look no further.

From today, restrictions on social contact will relax slightly as part of the government's road map.

It means that groups of up to six people, or two households, can socialise in parks and gardens once more.

Below we have listed five green spaces which would make the perfect spot for a picnic or a tranquil walk.

Morden Hall Park

Wimbledon Times:

Known for its wildlife and iconic white bridge, Morden Hall Park is a great spot for families.

The park sits in the middle of the Wandle Trail which follows the route of the River Wandle from Croydon to Wandsworth.

The National Trust Park hosts a variety of events throughout the year, from family trails to an open air cinema which is a hit with residents.

Currently, the park is hosting a Little Ranger, Big Missions spring trail all around Morden Hall Park.

Park-goers can also purchase takeaway hot drinks and snacks at The Potting Shed cafe and can also take a look around the garden centre.

Mitcham Common

Wimbledon Times:

Mitcham Common is a fantastic spot for a peaceful walk and also offers the chance to see wildlife in their natural habitat.

The Seven Islands Ponds area is one of the largest ponds on the common and is a great place for exercise.

Wimbledon Park

Located next to the All England Lawn Tennis Club, Wimbledon Park is one of the largest in Merton.

The park not only provides scenic views with its lake but also offers an athletics track and tennis courts which are both open.

South Park Gardens 

Wimbledon Times:

South Park Gardens is located just off the Broadway in central Wimbledon.

The spot has been recognised as one of the 'very best parks in the world' by the Green Flag Awards.

The award, which is an international mark of quality, recognises the best green spaces across the country and the world.

South Park Gardens is known for both its beautiful plants and wildlife and is a Grade II-registered on the English Heritage Register of Parks & Gardens.

Cannizaro Park

Located on the edge of Wimbledon Common, Cannizaro Park is home to a giant teapot fountain and the statue of Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie.

Cannizaro Park offers a range of attractions including a sunken garden, water garden, Mediterranean garden and rose garden.

Its collection of rare trees and magnificent plants and shrubs provides both a horticultural resource and an area for pleasant walks, picnics and family get-togethers, says Merton Council.
