Community Sport and Recreation Hub Development
Phase one is an investment of £1.3M and includes a new play area for toddlers and juniors, a multi-use games area, an adventure play area, a mountain bike trail, illuminated pathways and cycle trails, car parking, community allotments and the provision of trim trail exercise equipment.
Work started on the new play area for toddlers and juniors in February 2015 and was completed in June 2015 with an official opening ceremony.
The design of the play area incorporates ideas and view from local schools following a consultation as well as capturing the mining history of the area and the previous history of the athletics track.
Work on the multi use games area (MUGA) started in February 2016 and is due to be completed in March 2016.
The MUGA will enable children between 11-16 years old to play recreational football, netball, basketball and cricket in a purpose built floodlit area.
The design elements of the MUGA were chosen following a consultation in December last year with local schools, including Hednesford Valley High and Staffordshire University Academy, who chose elements such as the skills panels and the colours.
