Greystone Recreational Ground
This ancient heath land was first bequeathed to the residents of Penketh in 1868 and confirmed in 1869, six acres were reserved for a recreation ground, and five acres for a cemetery for Penketh. You can ready more about Penketh's history at British History
The recreation ground is ideal for many sports and exercise from football to jogging. A safe play area is fenced off to provide a space for young children and carers, with climbing frames and other play ground equipment it's a hit with many of the local children.
The play area and recreation ground is cleaned regularly, however if you find that it's not suitable for use, please let us know so we can arrange for cleaning.
Wythenshawe Recreational Ground
Also part of the ancient heath land this remaining parcel of Park land is beautifully surrounded by native British trees and shrubs to encourage birdlife which separate the park from the noisey nearby traffic. Penketh Brook at the opposite end to the duel carriage way runs down well lane and empties at the Mersey just past Dichfiels farm.
The facilities are well maintained and cleaning is regularly provided. The park has a safe play area for the younger children and it is also fenced off to prevent dog mess. With a wide range of play equipment including swings and climbing frames of all kinds.
The play area and recreation ground is cleaned regularly, however if you find that its not suitable for use please let us know so we can have it cleaned.
The Penketh Gardens are situated next to the old BT building on Warrington Rd. Here you will find a small area to take a walk. Great for walking the dogs.
Penketh Pool and Community Centre
The Pool and Community Centre is situated at the heart of Penketh's public amenities including the library, Honiton Way shops, doctors' surgeries and healthcare related facilities.
The centre is the first point of contact for enquiries or queries for both Penketh Parish Council and it's subsidary, Kingfisher Leisure Services.
We are proud of the Swimming Pool and Community Hall and regard it as having an important role in the daily life of Penketh people for both community and health based issues. Ever since its creation in the early 70's it has provided the community with safe family fun and facilities for exercise and recreation.
Honiton Way locally known as the square, isn't privately owned by Penketh Parish Council although we do maintain the planters for the benefit of residents and the people who use the facilities.
