We’re working with local cricket clubs and schools, Kent Cricket, Platform Cricket, and the England and Wales Cricket Board to create more cricket facilities in Thamesmead, and have now installed a new cricket pitch near the Southwood Road entrance of Birchmere Park. The pitch is an additional feature for Birchmere Park, and we've made sure there’s enough space so all of the park's current activities are still able to take place.

You can see exactly where it's located in the diagram below.

We hope that this will be an exciting addition to Birchmere Park. Please click here for answers to questions about the new pitch.
