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 has taken on responsibility for Mountfield Park (behind B&Q DIY Superstore). There is seating available and this is an ideal location for dog walking and families.
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.
