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. The cricket pitch will be an additional feature for Birchmere Park. We’ll make sure there’s enough space so all the current activities will still be able to take place.

The new full-size cricket pitch will arrive in 2021. You can see exactly where it will be located in the diagram below.

We hope that the new cricket pitch will be an exciting addition to Birchmere Park. You can tell us what you think by contacting Dan Wells, Sports Development Manager at [email protected] by 9 October.
