King George V Recreation Ground
The Town Council manages the King George V Recreation Ground as Trustees, on behalf of Fields In Trust. Recreation grounds were purchased across the country following the death of King George V, who was a keen sportsman, following public fundraising in his memory.
The aim was to ensure that all urban areas had at least one free outdoor recreation area.
The King George V Recreation Ground in Ferryhill is situated in the Broom area of Town and is a very well used recreation area.
The facility includes a childrens play area, a cantilever swing, two grass 5-a-side pitches, bike track, floodlit basketball court, 2 youth shelters, Coca Cola wall, 1 football pitch and changing rooms.
The King George V is the home venue for Ferryhill Celtic F.C and Ferryhill Town F.C.
By working in partnership Ferryhill Town Council and the Friends group aim to work to continuously improve the playing fields. King George V is one of five sites owned by Ferryhill Town Council to be awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award.
