Vine Road Recreation Ground

Vine Road Recreation Ground (Richmond)

Brief Description

Vine Road Recreation Ground was laid out in 1926 on a former orchard, sandwiched between railway lines. The park has a small timber pavilion with pitched roof and small central clock that overlooks an open bowling green, which is backed by hedging with seating around it on 3 sides. Beyond the bowling green the park is laid out as a recreation ground. An adventure playground opened here in July 1967. An area of ornamental planting is in front of the pavilion.
