Work continues to demolish former Queen's Park Sports Centre

This morning (Wednesday 8 March) saw the demolition of the glass dome structure at the former Queen's Park Sports Centre on Boythorpe Road.

The centre closed in December 2015 when the new £11.25 million Queen's Park Sports Centre was opened on the site of Queen's Park Annexe.

At their meeting yesterday, members of the council's cabinet approved a feasibility study to provide detailed plans on installing 3G artificial sports pitches on the site. These could be used for a variety of different sports including: football, rugby, hockey and athletics.

This will be developed over the coming months.
