Carvers Recreation Ground is a great community resource…but we think it could be even better.

If the Coronavirus Crisis has shown us anything, it is how valuable our outdoor spaces are. Carvers Recreation Ground is a 6 acre-site off Southampton Road just a short walk from the Town Centre. It has a much-used skate park, community centre with café, play area, table tennis and cricket pitch; but is there more that could be done to make it an attractive, relaxing and useful recreational park?

Over the next few weeks and months, we will be talking to the community about Carvers. We want to know what would make it even better for you and your family. What would make you visit more? What would make you stay? Do you know a similar Town Centre space which ticks more boxes for you?

We hope that people will engage with this positively and our aim is to use the information to apply for funding to make your suggestions into reality.
