Sport and leisure facilities in Queen’s Park

Update: January 2016

Plans to build a state-of-the-art leisure centre for Queen’s Park on the existing Moberly site are expected to go ahead from 15 February 2016, when the centre will close for approximately 2 years. Nearby
Jubilee Sports Centre will remain open during this time.

We are confident that the majority of users have been found alternative provision during the redevelopment.

The high quality new leisure centre at Moberly will be bigger than the existing Moberly and Jubilee combined. This £28 million investment in new sports facilities also includes:

  • a community sports facility on the existing site of Jubilee Sports Centre
  • an upgraded, free-to-access games area
  • new outdoor fitness equipment at Queen’s Park Gardens
  • a new synthetic pitch at St. Augustine’s

This will provide a 37% increased sports provision for the area.


Bookings for Moberly are no longer being taken.

Please use facilities at the nearby Jubilee Sports Centre or
Paddington Recreation Ground, or see our full list of nearby facilities.

Community groups and clubs

If you are a community group who currently uses the facilities at Moberly, we can help you to find an alternative venue during the refurbishment.

Please speak to sports centre staff or call 020 7641 4807 for more information.


We have built a new synthetic football pitch at St. Augustine’s to replace the pitch at Moberly.


We will continue to offer affordable sports and leisure activities and membership packages and concessions for Westminster residents.

If you are a neighbour of either Moberly or Jubilee sites, Willmott Dixon will send you a newsletter prior to starting building works outlining timescales and contact details. Willmott Dixon is a member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme.


Much of the investment in new sport, leisure and community facilities will be funded by the development of 156 new homes across both sites through our development partner Willmott Dixon.

12 high-quality replacement affordable homes will be built on the Jubilee site. 

Estimated timeline

Moberly Sports Centre closes 15 February 2016
Moberly reopens and work on Jubilee begins Spring 2018

The timeline is indicative and may be subject to change as the project progresses.

The redevelopment brings much-needed improvements to sport and leisure in Queen’s Park and South Kilburn by providing a long-term alternative to two underused and ageing sports centres that are no longer fit for purpose.
