New tennis net at Onchan Park
There is a new tennis net on the tennis court at Onchan Park! Tennis was a popular activity as recorded in our survey from last year, and now the council have replaced the posts and net. Onchan Park is the local name for Oakdale Road Recreation Ground, the park and tennis court are open all day, every day for the public to play on this hard outdoor surface.
Bus numbers 25, 27 stop at Tesco in Carlton and there is a path from the very top of Church Street straight up the hill to the Elwes Arms pub. From there, Onchan Park is across the road beyond the post box. Alternatively, number 43 loops through Bakersfield, up Douglas Avenue and then stops on Oakdale Road. The park is about a 5 minute walk east past Jazz’s convenience store along Oakdale Road.
By car, the park is accessible from the city centre via Sneinton dale and Oakdale Road or from the Tesco Superstore in Carlton via Southdale Road and Southdale Drive. There is lots of on-street parking on Onchan Drive, NG4 3DB or Onchan Avenue, right next to the park gate.
Friends of Onchan Park are really pleased that the net has been replaced, please let us know if you use the court, we’d love to hear from you.
