This building was added to the park in the late 1920's and has now been fully reglazed and joins on to a new two-storey building which provides a wonderful restaurant and event space for the park. This is open between 10 and 4 during the winter, and between 10 and 5 in the summer. It is also available for private hire in the evenings.

Children's play area
There are two children’s play areas with equipment for children of all ages.
9 hard courts and 2 Multi-Use Games Areas which are free to access throughout the year! There is currently no booking system at the site so you can just turn up and play. As we approach the tennis season we will be implementing a free online court reservation system so you can get a court in advance.
The pool is normally open from late May to September, depending on the weather. The water is treated daily to keep it clean and leaves, debris and litter are also removed on a daily basis.
The Greenhead Park skatepark is a great attraction for young people who want to hone their skateboarding skills. The site welcomes BMX bikers and rollerbladers as well as skateboarders, and there’s free and open access during park opening hours.
