Life in the Colliers Wood Area
Colliers Wood is a district in south west London and is located on the London Borough of Merton. Through the middle of Colliers Wood runs a busy high street that provides plenty of shopping and grocery stores, as well as cafes, restaurants and takeaways for residents. The area is mostly residential with small businesses that cater for locals. However, there are 2 large shopping areas for residents and visitors: The Priory Retail Park and The Tandem Centre, both of which offer a variety of different services and products. There is also a large supermarket complex in the area. Colliers Wood has three parks, one that is known as the National-Trust owned Wandle Park that offers approximately 11 acres of green land, giving plenty of green space for recreation and a relief from city life. After a “Making Colliers Wood Happy” initiative that was introduced after being inspired by the BBC TV series Making Slough Happy, there have been plenty of developments in building the community spirit leading to various events and creative activities to the area. The area has excellent transport links, being served by the northern line and various buses leading into and out to other parts of the city.
