Celebrating the new boules court

Even more facilities offered at Beacon Park thanks to Lottery funding.

A new boules court and an all-weather table tennis table have been launched at Beacon Park this September.

The new facilities have been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund, as part of Lichfield Historic Parks project.

Councillor Val Richards, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Communications & Tourism, said: “Boules is such an enjoyable outdoor game and can be fun for all ages, so it’s wonderful to see the new court open for play. I am also pleased that visitors can now play table tennis, which means there are plenty of activities to keep everyone busy at Beacon Park.”

The boules court is to the left of Lakeside Bistro in Beacon Park and does not need to be booked. Anyone can play on the court with their own boules, or equipment can be hired for £2 (plus a £5 deposit) from the Ranger Station, next to the crazy golf course.

The new table tennis table is to the right of the crazy golf course. Bats and balls can be hired from the Ranger Station for £2 (plus a £2 deposit).
