Work has started on two major facility improvements at Enderby Leisure and Golf Centre.
The centre, which is run by leading operator Everyone Active in partnership with Blaby District Council, will benefit from a new, state-of-the-art soft play area and a car park extension. Work began on Wednesday 1 November.
Courtesy of a £300,000 investment by Everyone Active, the new soft play area will be positioned in the current sports hall alongside three of the existing badminton courts.
It will be suitable for up to 122 juniors and 56 babies and toddlers and will include:
The soft play is due to open on Saturday 16 December with an official, celebratory opening planned for January 2024.
Meanwhile, a further 50 spaces will be added to the car park, bringing its overall capacity to 279 spaces.
Funded by a £188,000 investment from Blaby District Council, the extension will be to the left side of the centre as viewed from Mill Lane. Work is due to be completed by the first week of January 2024.
As part of the extension, 20 trees will be removed. A replanting scheme is already underway.
This work will cause minimal disruption for customers. Only a few parking spaces will be unavailable on the first one or two days of works.
