Selsdon is surrounded by extensive woodland and grassland areas, historically known as great hunting grounds, which were known as Selsdon Park Estate in the past. Since the war times, the estate was divided into private smallholdings. After the times of fast-expanding within the residential area, a committee was formed to secure natural woodland area which is over 200 acres of land; woodlands currently turned into natural forest and bird sanctuary.
