France Lynch Pleasure Ground
France Lynch Pleasure Ground is situated between Chalford Hill and France Lynch. For small children there is a play area with swings and roundabout on the Burcombe Way side of the grounds, while the older children’s play area is on the France Lynch side, with slide, climbing frame and swings.
The council have been able to make additions to the facilities in these pleasure grounds in the last two years. The basketball and five-aside football pitch was installed in 2015. This was funded from the Active Together grants scheme from Gloucestershire County Council with the help of our County Councillor, Stan Waddington, and has proved to be very popular. In 2016 thanks to funding from the National Lottery’s Awards for All and a local developer (106 agreement) the parish council were able to purchase and install an adult outdoor exercise area.
The most recent addition, is a new play area which opened in July 2020. This project has been funded by Chalford Parish Council, Gloucestershire County Council Growing our Communities Fund, Stroud District Council, section 106 payment in respect of small developments, Broadband Action Group & National Lottery Awards for All. We are grateful to all for making this installation possible.
