Field is located at West Wold, off West Leys road and is open each
day until dusk. Please note for health reasons NO
DOGS are allowed on the playing field (except service dogs).
Facilities include: Young children’s play area, ramps and
mounds, Sports field with football pitches, cricket pitch, &
2 cricket nets, rugby posts, BMX track, Fenced Multi-Use Games area
which can be hired for netball etc. Please observe notices in relation
to safe use of equipment and facilities. The pavilion has four changing
rooms, toilet facilities (one for the disabled), showers, a kitchen
and social area that opens onto a west-facing patio. It is often
open at weekends and holidays selling sweets, drinks, ice creams,
hot and cold drinks. It also has a licensed bar area for members
Please support your
local playing field. Discos, race nights, quiz and supper evenings
can be arranged to raise funds as well as the annual Gala. The Playing
Field is NOT run by the Parish council (which funds the lease and
maintenance of the site) but development costs are covered by the
fund-raising activities of the Playing Field Association committee.
The committee takes
care of the day to day running of the facilities. Many hands make
light work - you could help us by organising fund raising and sports
activities, or just by painting, digging or weeding. We are always
keen to try to include others in the planning and running of the
playing fields (especially children and young people)
As you may know
SwanFEST '19 was cancelled earlier this summer, basically due
to a lack of volunteers.
After a FaceBook campaign we have been able to muster up 8-9
people who are willing to help out at future events, however this
is not enough. If you are as keen as us to continue having events
at the Playing Fields....WE NEED YOU!
If you are willing to help please email us at email@example.com
Basically the more people we have the easier it is for everyone,
and the less time you would need to contribute. Ideally we would
like about 30 people on our volunteer list, so as you can see
we have some way to go.
All the play equipment in
the playground area has been provided through fundraising and
has cost tens of thousands of pounds. In 2017 we installed some
new equipment in the park. We replaced the central climbing frame,
added a Basket Swing, and replaced one of the original Springers
with a new 4 seater one. These additions have added a new dimension
to the play park area and have been received with great enthusiasm
A lot of ongoing
maintenance work is also taking place in the play area, the tidying
up of the seats and benches is well under way and should be ready
for the spring. There is more work still to be done over the next
year or so, some of the equipment we have is over 20 years old
and needs constant maintenance, we hope to be in a position to
refurbish or replace some of the equipment depending on the availability
of future funding.
The plan is to
make the Swanland Playing Fields park one of the best in the East
Riding, suitable for all children of all abilities.
