Work on the new Sports Central facility in Milton Keynes was officially started with Mayor Councillor Steve Coventry taking the reins at a sod cutting ceremony.
The new sports facility is on land close to the Network Rail building and Station Square and once complete will offer:
> full-size third generation (3G) artificial playing pitch constructed to FA and RFU standards
> two multi-use games areas for hard court sports eg tennis, netball and basketball
> a pavilion and areas to socialise, use as a meeting place or to hold children’s parties, and changing facilities.
The offical opening is scheduled for summer 2017, with building work undertaken by contractor, Kier and overseen by Milton Keynes
The project is being funded through a variety of sources primarily from Section 106 contributions from Network Rail, Sport England and Rugby World Cup 2015 legacy funding.
