Westfield Recreation Ground

This important green space is used by the community as a recreational area which offers an area to play and explore within a residential area. There are various recreational facilities including playground and outdoor gym. There is also a large open space for general play, football etc, and a half basketball court. 

Harpenden Town Council is focussed on renovating and refurbishing this area including designating areas to encourage wildlife and biodiversity.

It is our aim to:

  • maintain and improve the recreation ground and its fitness and play equipment
  • improve the ecological biodiversity and habitats for wildlife where appropriate
  • raise awareness of the Recreation Ground within the local community and wider area.

Location:  The Recreation Ground can be accessed on foot via Hyde View Road, Westfield Place or Beeching Close (off Westfield Road) or from the end of Willoughby Road (off Ox Lane).
