In Brief Recreation
For every acre of built environment, there will be an acre of open space. There will be play areas and green corridors throughout Sherford, but its principal recreation space will be the 500-acre community park – the size of 300 football pitches. Apart from all its sports facilities, the park will feature community gardens and allotments, protected wildlife habitats and perhaps an organic farm to supply the town with fresh produce. There will also be a sports hub and swimming pool in the south west corner of the town.
