Green Lane Playing Field
Situated on the southern edge of town off the A342 Andover Road, the 6.5 hectare site is currently being redeveloped to provide new football pitches - including a floodlit all-weather surface pitch - as well as a pavilion with changing rooms. The pavilion will also have office accommodation for the Wiltshire Football Association and will become their new HQ.
This new development for the town provides outstanding football facilities for youth and adult teams.
The pitches will be bookable in advance through our partners, The Wiltshire FA.
Green Lane Playing Fields is also the home of the Devizes Bowmen Archery Club, and over the next few years we will be working with them to improve their on-site facilities as well.
Green Lane Skate & BMX Park
On the same site is the Town's Skate and BMX park. This is a great example of the variety of park styles that can be achieved within a skatepark. There is a mini-ramp, a rhythm section, a plaza strip and a level change with real street style stairs and handrail.
With all of this incorporated into one space there is so much potential for long flowing lines around the whole park. Equally it helps accommodate a large number of users at one time, with certain aspects designed to appeal to each skatepark user to help avoid collisions. The Plaza area and level change is designed with skateboarders in mind, the rhythm section is very popular with BMX and scooter riders and the level change/linking street obstacles have something for everyone.
Although Devizes Leisure Centre is managed by the principal authority, Devizes Town Council supports the running of this service by making a significant annual financial contribution towards its operational costs.
