The Recreation Ground is a beautiful open space in the heart of the world heritage city of Bath. Located just 5 minutes from the main bus and train stations, the Rec provides for a wide range of sporting activities as well as events such as concerts, exhibitions and festivals.
The Charity Commission published a Scheme for the Recreation Ground on 12 June 2013. The Scheme is a legal order which gives the Recreation Ground Trust powers to proceed with its proposals to resolve the issues arising from the occupation of part of the Recreation Ground by Bath Rugby. The Scheme also makes provision for the future of the Leisure Centre. Details of the Scheme and of the proposals for the Recreation Ground can be found in the section; ‘Future of the Rec’.
The new, independent trustee body is now in operation and is responsible for taking forward the plans for the Recreation Ground. The Board of Trustees has now been appointed. (see 'About us' for profiles on the Trustees).
