Elm Lane Recreation Grounds, Lewishham

Elm Lane Recreation GroundResidential recreation ground

This recreation ground in the residential centre of Lewisham serves a number of schools and clubs.  It was significantly uneven with no consistent gradient and was prone to water-logging.

A shallow cut to fill grading operation and the installation of protective swales improved the degree of run-off.  In addition, a primary and secondary drainage system was installed together with a central synthetic grass wicket and the re-surfacing of wickets enclosed on practice nets.

The facility is well used and provides a junior rugby pitch, two football pitches, a cricket wicket and practice nets.  A high degree of maintenance has been maintained.
