Sport and leisure facilities in Queen’s Park

Update - June 2016

Plans to build a state-of-the-art leisure centre for Queen’s Park on the existing Moberly site are now underway with building work taking place at both the Moberly and Jubilee Sports Centre sites managed by Willmott Dixon. 

The nearby Jubilee Sports Centre will remain open whilst the new sports centre is built at the Moberly site.

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 at Queen’s Park Gardens
  • 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 and much needed modern facilities.

Construction updates

If you are a direct neighbour of either the Moberly or Jubilee sites, Willmott Dixon will send you a monthly newsletter updating you on progress across both sites.

Working with you

There will be lots of opportunities around the construction of the new leisure centre including apprenticeships and projects with local schools. The latest updates will be in your community newsletters and online.

Funding

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. 

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.
