Recreation Ground

The recreation ground playing fields, the children's playground and the peaceful memorial garden are owned for the village by a charity, the Chobham Recreation Ground Charitable Trust*.

The ground was originally created as a war memorial following the First World War on meadowland purchased by money raised through a public appeal. As a further memorial after the Second World War, the formal gates and supporting wall were built and 32 chestnut trees were planted - one for each of the men who lost their lives in the conflict.

Today, the recreation ground provides a large open, green space in the heart of the village, used throughout the year for relaxation, sport and play.

The day to day running of these village amenities and the hire of the Parish Pavilion, the All-Weather Surface Court and the Recreation Ground are managed by Chobham Parish Council. Find out more in Facilities for hire 

The children's playground is open all year-round and other FREE recreation facilities include an outdoor tennis table for ping pong and a zipwire.
