Visitors to Woking Park can now take advantage of new car parking facilities and state-of-the-art 3G sports pitches at Woking Leisure Centre, thanks to funding from Woking Borough Council.
The car park, which opened today (Thursday 22 May), will improve car parking capacity by an additional 261 parking spaces. While the new 3G sports pitches will revolutionise outdoor sports facilities at Woking Leisure Centre when they open to the public on Monday 26 May with a football tournament run by freedom leisure.
In an innovative move to maximise the space available, the four floodlit, seven-a-side 3G sports pitches have been created on the roof of the new car park. A walkway links the pitches to the rear of Woking Leisure Centre and additional bicycle racks have also been installed.
Woking Borough Council's Strategic Director, Sue Barham, said: "Woking Park is a popular destination for both residents and visitors. The new single-storey car park will deliver much-needed additional capacity for visitors to Woking Park, while the fantastic new 3G sports pitches will ensure that the local community has access to first class sporting facilities that will benefit both existing and future visitors to Woking Leisure Centre."
Stuart Harding, freedom leisure's Area Manager, said: "We are delighted that Woking Borough Council has invested in both additional car parking and 3G sports facilities that will benefit both leisure users and the wider community. The new state-of-the-art 3G sports pitches with floodlights means we have one of the best outdoor sports facilities in the Borough, if not the County, while having the car parking capacity to deal with increased demand."
Whether you manage a team or simply want a kick-around with your mates, freedom leisure is taking bookings for the new 3G sports pitches. Call Woking Leisure Centre on 01483 771122 or email email@example.com to reserve your slot now.
