A COMMUNITY SPACE FOR ALL
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 Rec has been an iconic space for the people of Bath, the surrounding area and visitors alike for over a hundred years. A wide range of sport has been played on the grounds including, croquet, tennis, football, cricket, lacrosse, volleyball and rugby - it has been the home of Bath Rugby since 1865.
In addition to sport the Rec has been the venue for numerous events including music and arts as well as the Bath Rotary Fireworks which will celebrate their 40th year in 2015. The Rec is the base for the Bath Half Marathon, a major fund raising event in the heart of the city, and a number of other community events.
The Rec is available for hire for a range of sports and activities and the Trustees are preparing a Strategic Development Plan to further enhance the opportunities for all – if you or your organisation would like to explore the potential we would love to hear from you.
