Sport and Recreation

Children’s Play

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.
