Swanland Playing Field is located at West Wold, off West Leys road and is open each day until dusk. Please note for health reasons NO DOGS are allowed on the playing field (except service dogs).

Facilities include: Young children’s play area, ramps and mounds, Sports field with football pitches, cricket pitch, & 2 cricket nets, rugby posts, BMX track, Fenced Multi-Use Games area which can be hired for netball etc. Please observe notices in relation to safe use of equipment and facilities.

The pavilion has four changing rooms, toilet facilities (one for the disabled), showers, a kitchen and social area that opens onto a west-facing patio. It is often open at weekends and holidays selling sweets, drinks, ice creams, hot and cold drinks. It also has a licensed bar area for members or guests.

Please support your local playing field. Discos, race nights, quiz and supper evenings can be arranged to raise funds as well as the annual Gala. The Playing Field is NOT run by the Parish council (which funds the lease and maintenance of the site) but development costs are covered by the fund-raising activities of the Playing Field Association committee.

All the play equipment in the playground area has been provided through fundraising and has cost tens of thousands of pounds. The committee also takes care of the day to day running of the facilities. Many hands make light work - you could help us by organising fund raising and sports activities, or just by painting, digging or weeding.

We are always keen to try to include others in the planning and running of the playing fields (especially children and young people)

Latest News - September 2016

The gala in July was a huge success and thanks must go to every organisation and individual that gave up their time and efforts in making the day happen. Gala photos can be seen on our Facebook page

We are always interested in new ideas for the gala, fundraising and committee support in general. Remember we are a voluntary, not council run organisation so would welcome any help and support from people from all walks of life.

We are in particular need of a gardener/ handy person that may be able to spare a few hours a month to help keep us tidy and we know now that the position of chairperson will be available from next year. Use the email above if you have ideas or can help out.

As cricket season smoothly moves over to football season the playing fields take on a different look. The park is less used in winter but the field is a hive of activity at weekends with children of all ages practicing their skills and learning new ones.

It's the variety of possibilities on the playing fields that we wish could be used more, we currently have regular football, cricket and netball teams that use the facilities but could offer a play space for so much more (rugby, rounders etc) and if anyone wants to explore this further then please get in touch on swanlandpfa@gmail.com
