This recreation ground is to be designated as only one of three areas within the county of Powys, as a Queen Elizabeth II Field, which is an honour bestowed on important community recreational spaces, in order to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The local community continue to be very involved in preserving and enhancing the long-term use of this field for the future and they have recently helped to raise funds locally, to refurbish this important neighbourhood area of play.
The grassed recreation field is used by the local community to host local events, and is used daily for general recreational use. The play area has received some recent investment that has provided the area with new items of play. It is a level, grassed area that has some bordering mature trees that help to magnify the visual aspect of the site.
The recreation field can be approached on foot or by car, but parking is restricted to on-street parking, which is best gained within the housing estate that adjoins the site on its northern boundary. There are footpaths dissecting the site and access for the disabled user is probably best gained by way of the level footpaths on the northern edge of the site. The footpaths leading into the site from the southern approach are steep and parking here is also difficult.
Being in an elevated position this recreation field has some lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
Items of play included within the play area are; springies, a rocker, cradle swings, two roundabouts, a slide, a basket swing, flat swings, a spinner, two climbing frames, a slide/climber and two see-saws. There is also seating provided on site.
