Epsom Common is recognised nationally as important for wildlife, designated by English Nature as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Local Nature Reserve. Epsom Common is approximately 435 acres in size and is the largest Local Nature Reserve in Surrey.

The Common has several ponds, Stew Pond, Great Pond, Stamford Green Pond, Baron's Pond and Blake's Pond. There are also many small ponds dotted around the Common, which often dry up in summer. This is just enough time for amphibians like frogs and newts to spawn and breed before the water dries up and they have to leave for the safety of damp places. The Great Pond is protected from fishing and is kept as a wildlife reserve for pondlife, amphibians and resident wildfowl such as coots, moorhen, mallard, tufted duck, great crested grebes, swans and herons. The water is also visited by less common wildfowl in the winter. Stew Pond is the only pond in which fishing is allowed and is used by the CALPAC angling club. There is also a population of roe deer on the Common.

Epsom Common borders Ashtead Common, a National Nature Reserve owned and managed by the Corporation of London. There is a 3 mile (4.8km) hard surfaced, all-year horseride and pedestrian track around the edge of the Common, which also makes for ideal cycling. A large network of footpaths covers the entire site, some are wide grassy paths that are also designated horserides for the summer, but the majority are small quiet tracks.
