Ordsall Park Bowling Green

Ordsall Park Veterans Bowling Club hold regular practice sessions and matches throughout the season. The bowling green is situated near to the 3D artifical football pitch.

Cage Cricket

A brand new way of playing cricket. This new facility is the first of its kind as a purpose built facility in the U.K

The ‘cage' is a fenced-off area which is the size of a basketball court. The rules are simple; six people play at once, taking it in turns to bat, bowl and field across four zones. Players compete as individuals but have to work together to win by hitting the ball on the sides of the cage. There is also no external umpire - this means that fielders rotate around the ‘red zone' where they take on the responsibility of calling decisions. The game allows people of all ages to get involved, regardless of where they live or their background. Players are also encouraged to design their own bats and logos, engaging the kind of creativity seen in skateboarding and BMX.

Ordsall Park Community Garden

The garden has been designed to be DDA compliant which means it has been designed to cater for people with disabilities and includes some sensory planting. The garden is intended to be enjoyed by all ages and involvement from the community young and old alike is essential for the garden to last for many years to come and be enjoyed by future generations.

The community garden was designed by the Friends Of Ordsall Park in association with the Salford Rangers Team & Salford City Council. The building & planting was done with the help of volunteers from Friends Of Ordsall Park group, Salford city council & our park ranger.
