New sports park with cycle track opens in Colchester

Colchester’s newest sporting facility, the Northern Gateway Sports Park – which features a one-mile floodlit cycle track –  opened to the public today (Monday 26 April).

The new £28.8 million Northern Gateway Sports Park facility, which is located off junction 28 of the A12, features a cycle track, a learn to ride course and cycle pump track for children. The 76-acre sport and leisure facility also boast 3G pitches, grass rugby pitches, a multi-use sports centre, fitness suite, exercise studios, an interactive velo–studio, indoor cricket, badminton, futsal and archery.

The facility is part of a wider sport and leisure development at the Northern Gateway and has been supported by funding from groups including British Cycling, Sport England, and from the England and Wales Cricket Board. For now, the park is open at a reduced capacity due to government Covid guidelines, but residents and visitors will be able to begin a membership, explore the site and use the on-site café.
