Recreation Ground

Poplar Way Recreation Ground has a top quality full sized football pitch and recently refurbished changing facilities, including showers, plus extensive parking. A second football pitch has recently been added.

The cost to hire the pitch is £700 per year, we currently have a vacancy for a Saturday league team.  For further information please contact the Clerk on 01709 837550 or by email:

Any use of the recreation ground by organisations, teams etc must first be sanctioned by the parish council.

Casual use by Catcliffe residents is permitted.

There is also an enclosed play area for small children, a large expanse of open ground and a football/basketball net.

A second children’s play area is situated at Highfield View. Due to vandalism and the high cost of repair and maintenance we have had no option but to close this facility. Whether this is permanent is subject to discussion.
