Jesus Green

Jesus Green is an area of open parkland with space and facilities for a range of activities and sports. You’ll find:

  • public toilets with disabled facilities
  • a refreshments kiosk, open all year round
  • an outdoor swimming pool
  • six tennis courts – four tarmac and two grass
  • a table tennis table
  • a play area that caters for children of all ages, based on the theme of railways.
  • a barbecue area with stones for the use of portable barbecues

In the fenced-in play area, younger children can play on the ‘railway engine’. It has a mini-roundabout, ‘springy’, swings, and climbing frame. Older children can use up their energy on the net climber, group swing or slide.

The tennis courts are free to use on a first come, first served basis. If people are queuing we ask that you limit your session to 30 minutes. Between October and April, only the tarmac courts are available.

On Sunday afternoons in the summer you’ll often be able to catch some live music.

On the facing bank of Jesus Green is a thin strip of land called Jubilee Gardens. This is host to 40,000 Carlton daffodil bulbs in a ‘field of hope’ in recognition of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The Jesus Green Association is an independent group dedicated to protecting the interests of the green.
