Woodlands, Parks and Open Spaces

A Greener Rochford

Rochford District Council is changing how our parks and open spaces are managed.

In 2021, we invited you, the residents to complete a survey to help us create an action plan for the open spaces. The project is now under way, with more information available on the Parks for Nature page.

Most recreation grounds located around the District provide football pitches. Find out more about how to book football pitches online.
