Things to do at Parson’s Close Recreation Ground review

Parson’s Close Recreation Ground is located in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. It is located on the outer edge of the town centre.

The park was awarded a Green Flag in 2015 and has maintained it ever since. It is home to the very popular Splash and Play facility, the beach, a skate park and there is also a bandstand. The splash and play are only open in the warmer months, usually late May to September. It was installed in 2011 and it is free. Alongside the beach, play area and splash pad it is a great family-friendly free day out. The chlorinated water is tested three times a day. The beach is usually open when the splash area is.

The Skate Park is also free to enter and features multiple ramps and drops. It is suitable for skateboards, bikes and scooters. The play area is fenced and includes a toddler climbing frame, zip wire, swings and a roundabout. There are also 2 free to use table tennis tables in the park.

This is a park to keep your eye on as they are planning on some major improvements including the temporary beach becoming a permanent fixture, replacing the surface of the Splash ‘n’ play area, building new toilets and a new inclusive play area.
