What we do

We love our parks & green spaces here in Earl Shilton – they’re perfect for walking, playing, relaxing, taking a bit of time out… all sorts of things, in fact.

And because we love them we’re dedicated to working with the local community to try to make them better.

At the moment we look after the following parks & green spaces round the town:

Wood Street Community Park...
Queen Elizabeth II Hall Field Park…
Maple Open Space…
Oakdale Open Space…
Weavers Springs Sports Park...
Borrowdale Close Green...
Hurst Road Play Area...
Jubilee C
lose Play Area... 

To find out more about each of these spaces click on the place names. You’ll find a little bit about the space, including what there is for you to do when you visit. We also have emerging plans for most of our spaces, not to mention seasonal projects – and you’ll find details of these here as well.

Some of these spaces feature children’s play areas, skateparks and the like. Again, there are more details within each site’s page.

Anything else I should know..?

Oh yes!

Man’s best friend

Dogs are welcome in most of Earl Shiltons parks and green spaces – but following consultation & agreement in 2015 we acknowledged the need for dog owners to be aware of the law. Please visit this page on the GOV.UK website to learn about controlling your dog in public.
