Play equipment in playing field: There is a large grass area for a sports pitch with football goals at either end.

There are several benches to sit and enjoy the area, kindly provided through donations and grants. A community orchard of heritage local fruit trees with a belt of wildlife planting runs along one side. Local children have created bug-hotels to encourage 6- and 8-legged residents to move it!
