The Recreation Ground - {CATEGORY}

The Recreation Ground ("the Rec") is a large open space in the centre of Bath, England, next to the River Avon, used for recreational purposes by Bath residents and the public generally. About a quarter of the Rec is leased to Bath Rugby during the rugby union season as a sports ground capable of holding 11,700 people. During the summer the rugby ground's temporary East Stand is removed to make way for cricket on the larger pitch to the easternmost end of the Rec. This cricket pitch is used for local contests and by the Somerset County Cricket Club for one match a year. Other parts of the eastern area are used by Bath Hockey Club, Bath Croquet Club, Bath Drama Club and some tennis courts. There is a cricket pavilion at the William Street entrance to the ground. The council run Sports and Leisure Centre is located on the southern edge of the Rec by North Parade. In former years the Rec was subject to periodic flooding from the River Avon, but a flood alleviation scheme in the 1960s improved the flow of the river, although the Rec remains part of the floodplain at risk of occasional flooding. The ground can still get very boggy after heavy rains.
