Vansittart Recreation Ground

  • Play Area with equipment suitable for 3-12 year olds
  • Skate Park
  • Car Parking - area is very small (approx six cars)

The children's play area and picnic area is fenced and designated as dog free. Along the outer area is a dog walking circuit. The Skate Park is in the top corner of the site with challenging equipment for young people to test their skills plus a floodlit 5-a-side football/basket ball court for public use.


Home to Windsor and Eton Athletics club for many years until their move to the Thames Valley Athletics Centre in Pococks lane, the area was turned back into a neighbourhood park once the running track and pavilion were removed in 2000.
