Leisure / Recreation Facilities

The Town Council is the major provider of outdoor recreation within our boundaries.


We are blessed with good access to outdoor recreation. With the cooperation of Eastleigh Borough Council, the Town Council, as the level of local government closest to the residents, is responsible for looking after an increasing amount of our open spaces and outdoor leisure facilities.


This page also gives information relating to indoor recreation facilities at Wildern Leisure Centre which is Hedge End's community facility based on the Wildern School campus.

There are many indoor and outdoor leisure pursuits taking place all year round which are suitable for all ages and abilities.
