Stratford Recreation Ground (Cycle Training Area)


A new cycle training area on the south-eastern corner of the Recreation Ground is helping young riders learn to cycle safely and prepare for the roads while being free from the dangers of other vehicles.

The layout of the track is a stylised version of the town centre roads to give some authenticity to it, as are the road signs and names. Road markings, pedestrian crossings and even working traffic lights aim to make the area as realistic as possible.

The area includes new tree planting, the provision of suitably cut tree trunks to form rustic/natural seating and a longer sward of grass to help with a wilding approach in the longer term.
