Flushing Bowling Green
Flushing Bowling Green is situated above the village, with stunning panoramic views of the inner harbour. The land was given to the people of Flushing by Mr Henry Trefusis in 1964, under the trusteeship of Mylor Parish Council.
The name ‘Bowling Green’ is a real misnomer as the area has never been used for the purpose of green bowling.
It was originally a piece of scrub land which was cleared by a dedicated team of volunteers to the wonderful asset that you see today.
The area consists of a fenced off children’s playground, a large expanse of grass, which is used as a venue for events by every organisation within the village, and a building which houses a kitchen and toilets. Over the last few years it has become a very popular venue for hosting children’s birthday parties and wedding receptions. The village school also use it as an outdoor classroom and playing field.
The Bowling Green is the only piece of property within the village that actually belongs to the people of Flushing. It can never be sold off for property development or any other use.
The Bowling Green Committee applied for and was awarded charitable status to access funds that will be used to rebuild the ‘pavilion’ to create a much bigger, eco friendly building with improved facilities.
Recently a sub-committee, Friends of Flushing Bowling Green Park, has been formed. Their aim is to obtain grant funding to replace the existing children’s play equipment.
The two videos at the bottom of this page (The Red Arrows and the Fred Olsen Cruise ship Braemar leaving harbour) were both filmed from the Bowling Green.
Please note that dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.
The majority of these images were taken on a sunny February day.
