Ashby Bath Grounds

Ashby’s historic Bath Grounds is an area of parkland close to the town centre. The grounds are used everyday by residents and visitors who come to enjoy this beautiful communal space.  There are many benches located around the grounds to sit on and relax or reflect. There are also a small number of memorial benches. These are available to purchase via the Memorial Bench Application Request. The grounds are also used for events such as the popular ‘Jim’s Tractor Run’ and ‘Ashby Sport Fun Day‘.

The Bath Grounds benefits from support from volunteer groups including the Friends of Ashby Bath Grounds, who were instrumental in the implementation of the all-weather Heritage Trail – scroll down for details.

The Town Council remains committed to maintaining the Bath Grounds in line with the Green Flag Scheme.

The Bath Grounds is home to Ashby Hastings Cricket Club  & Ashby Bowls Club who have both been playing on the grounds for over 100 years.

Native Bulbs Sign

Native Bulbs

You might spot some of these signs scattered around the Bath Grounds. Many native spring bulbs have been planted in these marked areas so look out for native daffodils, tulips and fritillary popping up in Spring. We hope you enjoy these Spring flowers and would ask if you do have a four legged friend with you to try and keep them away from this area. Many thanks, Ashby de la Zouch Town Council
