Health and Fitness

We are blessed with a wide range of sports facilities and other assets in the area, which we are trying to protect as they are an essential part of the character of the area that we all value so much. The best way to ensure these remain is to use them!

There are a number of sports clubs in the area, almost all of which you can join to play sports, or just to be a social member. These include

We also have several parks open to the public.

Osterley Park (accessed from Jersey Road is open 364 days a year. In 2019 there are lots of ways for people to get active at Osterley Park.

  • Couch to 5km: on 8 January at 10.30 am the next ‘Couch to 5km’ running program begins; this is a 9-week program for complete beginners looking to get into running with the end goal of running 5km continuously.
  • Osterley Parkrun (5 km) continues every Saturday at 9 am which is free for all participants, and the junior version (2 km) is held every Sunday at 9 am.
  • Health Walks: for those looking for some more gentle exercise there are 2 Health Walks each month, on the second and last Wednesday of each month at 10 am, these are a great chance for people to socialise and get active at the same time and are free of charge.
  • Yoga returns to Osterley on 7 April every Sunday at 9.15 am in the main house (price is £7 a session); these sessions are extremely popular and are run by The House of Yoga.
  • Cycling: Osterley Park have been the recipient of major funding from British Cycling and HSBC UK to support a new cycle hire facility on the estate. There are now around 60 bicycles for hire suitable for all ages and abilities with hire starting from just £3, this adds a new dimension to the visitor offer at Osterley.

Other parks in the area include Jersey Gardens (accessed from St. Mary’s Crescent/Ridgeway Road North/Wood Lane North), the open space around the junction of Jersey Road, Syon Lane and Windmill Lane and Marbaix Gardens (accessed from Thornbury Road). In addition there are various smaller open areas (e.g. the centre of Leigham Drive and the pedestrian connection between The Grove and Harvard Road) which materially support the character of the area.
