Fronted by the Remembrance Memorial Park Gates at the corner of Marvell and Tennyson Streets, Byron Recreation Grounds offers a considerable number of sporting facilities including cricket pitches, tennis, basketball and netball courts, soccer, hockey and rugby union fields and a croquet lawn.
An enclosed children’s playground can be found on the right, just inside the Remembrance Gates in front of the Scout Hall. It features a small climbing frame and a pair of swings.
A level footpath bisects the grounds linking Tennyson and Cowper Streets and my son and I often scooter up and down and stop off for a swing or a climb at the playground while we wait for my daughters nearby dance class to finish.
A welcome recent addition has been the popular cafe adjacent to the tennis courts – Byron Bay Tennis Cafe – where you can purchase awesome coffee, and tasty snacks and refreshments.
Free parking is available on surrounding streets including Tennyson, Carlyle and Cowper Streets.
