Striking views across Rainsbrook valley can be seen from Ashlawn Road Recreation Ground, a sporting venue purchased by Rugby Borough Council in 1945. The site is home to the St. Andrew's Rugby Football Club who host regular matches on this site and also incorporates several football pitches and facilities for informal recreation. Adjacent to the recreation ground is the Great Central Walk, a 95 acre footpath and cycleway stretching for 4.5 miles. The stretch past Ashlawn Road actually has nature reserve status and is known as the 'Ashlawn Cutting.' A great diversity of rare and endangered wildlife can be seen in the wide range of habitats provided by this cutting which runs along the line of the old railway.
Dogs must be put on a lead when directed. A Public Space Protection Order applies.
When open, there are accessible toilets and parking spaces available at the adjacent Rainsbrook Cemetery and Crematorium. Please respect the needs of mourners if using these facilities.
