Myrna Close is a linear walk along the line of a former railway line in Collier's Wood in the London Borough of Merton. It is a 0.75 hectare Local Nature Reserve and a Site of Borough Importance for Nature Conservation, Grade II, which is owned and managed by Merton Council.[1][2][3]

The vegetation is grassland, woodland and scrub. The main trees are elm, oak, and sycamore, and the reserve provides an important habitat for birds and butterflies. There is also a small stream and two ponds, which support wetland plants including brooklime.[1][3]

There is access from the road called Myrna Close.[1]
