Ashmore Park - Places of Interest

Places of Interest

At the heart of the estate is a large green park from which the area takes it name, consisting of a children’s play area and multiple sports facilities which include a skate park, all weather multi sports pitch BMX track and bowls green. The park is also home to the Wednesfield Aces speedway team.

There are two main shopping areas, known locally as the 'top' or 'bottom' shops due to their geographic location. Both precincts house a mix of local and independent businesses. The 'bottom shops' has underwent an extensive facelift during the early 2000s that included work to preserve the historic moat site.

Located on Griffiths Drive (the main road around the estate) there is a community centre, a youth club and a newly built Children's Centre “The Parks”. The Ashmore Park Community Centre and Ashmore Park Youth Club have each been renovated in recent years, improving both accessibility and security for the general users.

The estate is served by two Banks's pubs: "The Ashmore" and "The True Briton". There is also a Fish And Chips shop, a Post Office Chemist and Library.

Famous quotes containing the words places and/or interest:

    Literature is where I go to explore the highest and lowest places in human society and in the human spirit, where I hope to find not absolute truth but the truth of the tale, of the imagination and of the heart.
    Salman Rushdie (b. 1947)

    Where there is no exaggeration there is no love, and where there is no love there is no understanding. It is only about things that do not interest one, that one can give a really unbiased opinion; and this is no doubt the reason why an unbiased opinion is always valueless.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
