The parish council manages the three children’s play areas in Pitstone, including the kicking goal and basketball square. All these facilities are free for you to enjoy. We aim to ensure:
- there are safe and accessible places where all children and young people can play and socialise
- that a range of accessible, rewarding and affordable recreation opportunities are provided
- that the recreation opportunities reflect the needs and interests of the community
- that the value to the community of the available public open space is maximised and
- that the risk-benefit assessment of the facility concerned is favourable
Attached you will find copies of our Play Policy & Strategy and Local Play Audit for your information.

Skate Park and Multi-Use Ball Games Court
The council is currently working on plans to redevelop the recreation ground. The eventual new area will include a challenging and stimulating play space, a concrete skate park, a multi-use ball games court and enhanced picnic areas with fruiting and sensory planting. Again, all these facilities will be free for you to enjoy. You can find out further details in the current projects section of this web site.
The council also owns and manages the sports pavilion on Marsworth Road which has two football pitches. The pavilion itself has home, away and referees changing rooms, toilets and kitchen area. This is the home site for the Pitstone & Ivinghoe Junior Football Club and the Pitstone & Ivinghoe United Football Club, as well as providing facilities for the Pitstone, Ivinghoe and Cheddington United Football Club to train and play friendlies. The facilities may also be available for hire by the general public for football matches or training. If you are interested in hiring the pavilion, please contact the parish clerk.
