Welcome to Porlock Recreation Ground
Set in some 5.5 acres Porlock Recreation Ground is without question the green centre of this popular Exmoor village. Situated in a conservation area and within easy reach of the entire village the Recreation Ground contributes significantly to the social and leisure needs of residents and visitors of all age groups.
Facilities include a well-equipped children’s playground, 2 football pitches, a cricket pitch, floodlit tennis court & multisport court and a dog exercise field as well as a large pavilion with a meeting and function room, kitchen, changing rooms, showers, disabled toilets and baby changing room.
The Porlock and District Bowls Club is situated beside the Recreation Ground.
A boules court is planned for 2016 providing planning consent is granted.
The pavilion, football & cricket pitches are available for hire. Simply get in touch through the contact page to check availability.
Tucked behind the pavilion is the peaceful Porlock Garden of Remembrance commemerating those who fell in both World Wars.
Porlock Recreation Ground is a registered charity with the aim of preserving, maintaining and improving the facilities for the ongoing benefit of the village and local area.
The expenditure on the ground is funded mainly through the income raised at the annual Country Fair supplemented by rents and hire charges from regular and occasional users of the various facilities.
