The Recreation Ground

Lovingly referred to as 'The Rec' by locals.

The Recreation Ground was given to Hunstanton by the LeStrange family in 1896, it is managed by the Borough Council of Kings Lynn and West Norfolk, but belongs to the people of Hunstanton

Situated on Cromer Road the northern area of Hunstanton is the recreation ground, here you will find the football and cricket pitches.  Local clubs play here regularly but these facilities are also available to hire.  The pavilion provides suitable changing facilities and area to view the action.

Tennis Courts
The recreation ground is also home to some of the finest grass tennis courts in the area.  There are 10 courts in total and are available for public hire throughout the day from May to September. These tennis courts are home to the prestigious County & Hunstanton tennis tournaments held in July and August each year.
The area is also used for caravan rallies from May to September, and there is a skate park open all year round.
