BMX Track

The Burgess Hill BMX track opened in 2014 in Leylands Park. The track is the only one of its kind in Mid Sussex. The park features a ‘W’ shape to create a series of long straights and jumps, as well as a tightly designed pump track, a separate course where bikers use an up and down ‘pumping’ motion to propel the BMX forward instead of pedalling.

This area is perfect for new riders to practice balance, learn new skills and improve confidence on the bike.

Postcode: RH15 8RW

There is a Facebook page for the BMX Track. The Facebook page is maintained by a group of volunteers.


Petanque Rink

Burgess Hill’s new Pétanque rink was officially opened on Tuesday February 8 2022 by Burgess Hill Town Mayor Anne Eves and Mid Sussex District Councillor John Belsey, cabinet member for environment and service delivery. The Burgess Hill U3A Pétanque Group has been working with Burgess Hill Town Council and Mid Sussex District Council to develop a rink at Fairfield Recreation Ground. Pétanque, also known as boules, is a highly accessible sport that originated in southern France in the early 20th century. The new rink provides enough room for four games to take place simultaneously and is funded by a grant from Sport England and developer S106 contributions. To book a piste at Fairfield Recreation Ground, contact Mid Sussex District Council on 01444 477379 or visit Mid Sussex District Council’s booking page.
