Play areas

Roffey Recreation Ground

We are now moving forward with our plans to improve the youth activity area at Roffey Rec, off Leith View Road.

Following local consultation in 2023, the most popular proposal was the gym zone, followed by the chill zone, then the ball zone, however the margins were very close, so we are delivering all three to balance out the opportunities for this to be a really inclusive space for everyone.

Installation will start, week commencing 12th February, 2024 and is expected to last five to six weeks. Project updates will be posted here.

The area will be bigger than the existing tarmac area, but will not impose upon the football pitch. The ball zone will be a new concept in ball play and aimed at creating an inclusive space for many different sports to be played at the same time.
