The Parish Council is responsible for ensuring that there are adequate grounds available for both formal and informal recreation.
The growth of the Parish over recent years and the planned and future development for housing have created increasing space for recreation.
At present the Council develops and maintains:
Hellesdon – Recreation Ground, off Wood View Road
Hellesdon – Meadow Way
The Council is likely to take responsibility for Mountfield Park (behind B&Q DIY Superstore)
It currently leases informal recreation grounds off the Reepham Road (near Arden Grove School) that is a continuation of land given over to allotments.
The future development of the Royal Norfolk Golf Club is likely to produce further informal and formal recreation space for Hellesdon residents.
