9.       Is there access and parking for vehicles?

There is access for larger vehicles from North Parade via Bath City Leisure Centre. There is also an entrance for small to medium sized vehicles from William Street, off Pulteney Street. Please consider the effects of weather on the grounds surface as this will impact on damage caused by vehicles. It is advisable that you organise for suitable tracking to be put down in order to limit rutting to the ground.

 

There is a designated car park capable of holding approximately 110 cars. If necessary, it may sometimes be possible to negotiate further parking with the other facilities surrounding the recreation ground.

10.   What will be the terms and conditions of hiring the site for my event?

Users are expected to return the site and its facilities in the condition that they receive them in. This includes tidying up in the Cricket Pavilion. You should be cautious when using vehicles on the ground, especially in wet weather as this can cause bad rutting which will need reinstating, with the cost borne by the event organiser.
