Portswood Rec is a multiple use park set in a high density residential area, accessed via Grosvenor Road, Brickfield Road or Kitchener Road.

Portwood Rec has recently undergone some major changes and improvements and these are set to continue as funding is found.

It has a well equipped play area, a separate dog exercise area, a central open area for sport and events and is used by local schools for sports. The landscaped community garden is planted with exotic and native shrubs and plants to attract moths and butterflies. This was funded with a grant successfully applied for by the Friends of Portswood Rec in partnership with the City Council.
