Palemon Best Recreation Ground
CAFE PROPOSAL CONSULTATION

The Town Council own and manage the recreation ground as the trustee of a charity and we’ve been approached about having a shipping container café, alongside the new skatepark. (A shipping container takes less time to build and can be moved if it doesn’t work out).

We’d like to hear your views:

  • Do you support the idea of a café at the rec?
  • Do you have any comments about the detailed proposals (here)?
  • Is there anything you’d like to see included or changed?

For the full details of the proposal go to the following page:
PROPOSALS FOR A CAFE AT PALEMON BEST RECREATION GROUND

Consultation ends Sunday 6th December 2020

ABOUT PALEMON BEST

The Palemon Best Recreation Ground is located off Penbeagle Lane.  The land is a community open space that was bequeathed by the late Dr Palemon Best and is managed by the town council, acting as Trustee.

Facilities at the recreation ground include a skate park area, football field, childrens’ play area (with swings, slides, roundabout, zip wire and more).

There is also a community Orchard which welcome volunteers to get involved in helping looking after the trees and they have annual community events like Apple Day and Apple Wassail. www.stivesorchard.co.uk for more info.

Just above the orchard and skate park there is beautiful untouched area, 11 hectares of scrub and heath land that leads up to Carnstabba Hill that has a granite Tor and rock outcrop.  The St Ives Community Orchard group are looking to get this area recognised as a Nature Reserve to ensure it remains in its current wild state .  http://www.stivesorchard.co.uk/nature-reserve/
