Green Spaces &
King George V Playing Fields
Green spaces are important to any town. Melksham Town Council, in conjunction with Wiltshire Council in some instances, manages a wide range of parks, gardens, open spaces, allotments and play and recreation areas for the benefit of the Melksham community.
Offering enjoyment to all generations, the King George V Playing Fields is now managed by Melksham Town Council. The Playing Fields are undergoing development led by the Council.
Play and recreation areas are located at Methuen Play Area, Foresters Park Play Area, King George V Playing Fields, Lonsdale Gardens (Burnett Close), Speedwell Close, Hazelwood Road, Awdry Avenue, Riverside Walk, Queensway and Dorset Crescent/Primrose Drive. The areas are checked daily by our staff to identify any problems that may arise. There is also an annual inspection made by ROSPA and all the play equipment complies with Health & Safety Regulations. All the play areas are fenced creating a safe and secure environment for children to play in.
