Leisure and Amenities
The Council own, manage and maintain several children’s play areas, recreational parks and sports facilities across the town. Centenary Park, Piddinghoe Avenue, opened in March 2015 as an exciting new destination park, delivered in partnership with the Big Parks Project and has on-site provision of a café, bespoke playgrounds, skatepark, sport facilities, cycle and walking paths and an ancient village reconstruction will soon be constructed (subject to funding), making this a unique park attracting visitors from around the area and is a gateway into the South Downs National Park. The existing sports facilities were modernised to create a multi use games area with floodlighting for tennis, netball and football, along with several other football pitches available. All of our sports facilities and recreational parks are available to hire. Please contact us for details.
