Paddington Recreation Ground

Paddington Recreation Ground is a park in Maida Vale, City of Westminster, just north of Paddington.

The grounds are noted as the earliest public athletic ground of its kind in London.[1] Still the largest area of parkland within the City of Westminster, it attracts users who visit the Grounds for its green-space value. The ground are recognised as a Site of Local Importance for nature conservation.

Included within the grounds are ten tennis courts, an athletics track (refurbished in 2012), two artificial grass pitches, and two bowling greens. It has a field which is around 100 metres (330 ft) long and has an artificial cricket wicket. The park has a cafe which sells a selection of homemade items.

The water-based hockey pitch is home to Hampstead & Westminster Hockey Club, who have one of the best men's teams in the country, and compete in the English Premier League.

Westminster and other organisations undertook a major investment programme, which commenced in 2006 and are scheduled to take place over the next few years.[2]
