Whether you’re here for a day or to stay for a few years, you
may like to take some time out in our fantastic range of play
areas, sports grounds and open spaces.
Receiving a 5-star award from South West in Bloom, as part of their
Pride in Parks scheme, Jubilee Lake is an open space which offers play
equipment for a range of ages, a tea room, short country walking routes,
nature guides and an angling lake (permits from Wootton Bassett
Stationery on the High Street).
At Otter Way, Noremarsh, New Road, Showfield, Woodshaw and Poets
Park, recent local investment means that there are football pitches,
basketball courts, table tennis tables and a great range of fun play
equipment, to suite different ages and abilities.
For active adults, there are outdoor gyms at Poets Park and Otter Way
Park and for those seeking a little peace, the Jacqui Woolford Memorial
Park has a more restful atmosphere.
If you are keen to be active and compete, you may like to learn more
about the opportunities for sport and fitness in the town. The Lime
Kiln Leisure Centre offers a variety of classes, courses and facilities
for sporting clubs including netball, squash, Tae Kwon Do, swimming
and badminton. At the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground the local Sports
Association have developed a new site with excellent facilities for tennis,
football, running and cricket and our rugby club is just across the road.
For fans of hockey, you’ll find the Royal Wootton Bassett Hockey Club
on the astro-turf at the Royal Wootton Bassett Academy on weekday
evenings and weekends. There are so many more opportunities with our
vast range of clubs, groups and societies, you may want to take a look at
our Royal Wootton Bassett Community Magazine to find out more.
We pride ourselves that our town welcomes all with two and four feet!
To keep it a tidy and pleasant place for all, we have plenty of bins and
dog waste facilities to support residents and visitors.
