Firstly, what an unusual name. The land was left to the town of St Ives by Dr Palemon Best (died 1927). Dr Best practised medicine in St Ives and was the medical officer to the Admiralty and Poor Law Guardians, as well as Public Vaccinator. The land was given as an open space with free access to the public. Hence the name Palemon Best Recreation Area. It is a bit of a mouth full though and most people I know call it Penbeagle Park!
Penbeagle Park is half way up Penbeagle Lane, near the Fire Station off The Stennack.
1. The Main Play Park
The main play park is at the front of the recreation area, near the little car park. It is really well equipped for both babies and older children.
2. The Big Field
To the side of the play park is a big field for ball games.
3. The Skate Park
Behind the play park is the skate park.
4. The Community Orchard
There are lots of areas and walks to take dogs and also hack horses.
Car Park: there is a car park right in front of the play park. You can also park on the road.
Toilets: the nearest loos I can think of are in town!
Food & Drink: the nearest shop is the co-op at the top of The Stennack, by the mini roundabout. There is also a Cost Cutters, a Fish & Chip takeaway and a Pizza Company on the Penbeagle estate
