Spring is nearly here for our Ravelin Sports Centre project with the creation of a new three tiered wildflower amphitheatre.

This event space and the surrounding park has been sown with a vibrant mixture of wildflowers, herbs and perennials including daisies, cowslips, yarrow, thyme and chives. These species will produce a colourful spectacle from spring to autumn.

140 new trees will be planted, including native species Elm, Beech, Hazel and Oak. The installation of bat and bird boxes and possibly beehives are also planned to increase fauna and biodiversity in Ravelin Park.

Opening in 2022 and designed to be one of the UK’s greenest sports facilities, the centre will include:

  • 8 court sports hall
  • 8 lane 25m swimming pool
  • Fitness suite and multi-purpose studios
  • Squash courts
  • Ski simulator
  • Climbing wall
  • Teaching spaces
  • Café
