After Working hours
ALTHOUGH Prescot is essentially an industrial town there are adequate facilities for sports and recreation. In addition to the public recreation ground, many organisations cater for various, sports. The public recreation ground at Eaton Street includes a full size bowling green, laid with Cumberland Turf; it is equipped for children's recreation and there is an adequate area for football and juvenile sports. In Festival Year, Rose Gardens were tastefully laid out, and the Remington Gardens in Warrington Road represents, the Council's desire, not only to beautify the clearance area of the town, but also to make use of slum clearance areas to the best advantage.
The Fazakerley Gardens, at the rear of the Council Offices in High Street, gives a sheltered arborage and flower garden for those who look for peace and rest.

FOOTBALL. Association football is well represented in the town by the Prescot Cables A.F.C., whose ground adjoins the Eaton Street recreation ground.
