General Information

Fronted by the Remembrance Memorial Park Gates at the corner of Marvell  and  Tennyson Streets, Byron Recreation Grounds offers a considerable number of sporting facilities including cricket pitches, tennis, basketball and netball courts, soccer, hockey and rugby union fields and a croquet lawn.

An enclosed children’s playground can be found on the right, just inside the Remembrance Gates in front of the Scout Hall. It features a small climbing frame and a pair of swings.

A level footpath bisects the grounds linking Tennyson and Cowper Streets and my son and I often scooter up and down and stop off for a swing or a climb at the playground while we wait for my daughters nearby  dance class to finish.

A welcome recent addition has been the popular cafe adjacent to the tennis courts  – Byron Bay Tennis Cafe – where you can purchase awesome coffee, and tasty snacks and refreshments.

Free parking is available on surrounding streets including Tennyson,  Carlyle and Cowper Streets.
