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.
