Southsea Common is a vast open space that was purchased from the War Department in 1922. The area is adjacent to the popular seafront promenade and beach, which is ideal for kite flying, picnics and informal ball games. Facilities also include a children's play area, beach volleyball courts, tennis, pitch and putt and a skate park.
There are many paths across the Common, including the Ladies Mile, which are flanked by attractive spring bulbs. Some of the mature trees date from 1910.
Southsea Common was awarded Warburton's Best Picnic Spot in the South East in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
