Welshmill pump track

Play, woods & Frome’s famous BMX pump track

On the north bank of the river, Welshmill is one of Frome’s best spots for playing.

And with woods, an acclaimed pump track, a sand pit and play trail, there’s plenty of variety!

We look after this site with the help of the Frome Recreation & Open Ground Supporters – or FROGS for short! They’ve been instrumental in supporting, funding and consulting on the projects that have transformed this space in recent years – and they still have lots of ideas for the future. Find out more about FROGS.

Getting here

The children’s play area is at the Welshmill Lane end of the site.

You can also get here by following the footpath past the Cheese & Grain and the canoe club or cut through the woodlands by coming in off Welshmill Road.

Things to do at Welshmill

  • Swings, slides, sand and play trail
  • Explore the woods – hide and seek, den-making and make believe!
  • Jump higher and ride faster on the pump track
  • Walk into town and head back… on the Otherside
  • Picnics and play on lazy, sunny afternoons
