Turners Hill Road Recreation Ground

This 2-acre recreation ground, located in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is traditionally maintained and an oasis of calm yet less than half a mile from the built area of East Grinstead. It is an ideal site for sitting, walking and kite flying.
