Multi-use activity centre set for Salt Hill Park

High ropes

A family activity centre is to be created in Salt Hill Park, providing fun activities for all.

The current ten pin bowling facility will be transformed into a mixed use facility for people of all ages to enjoy, once the bowling contract ends.

Cabinet discussed the plans in December and approved of the options put forward, which include a trampolining zone, gaming zone, four bowling lanes, a soft play area, ski plex zone, café, party rooms and high wire climbing zone. There will also be 50 additional parking spaces.

Work will begin in June, with the fantastic new centre expected to open in March 2018.

Langley Leisure Centre is also to undergo a massive refurbishment as part of the council’s leisure strategy to get more people, more active, more often.

Councillor Joginder Bal, commissioner for environment and leisure, said: “The council is investing millions of pounds in leisure facilities in a way that hasn’t been seen for generations.

“The amazing plans for these two sites will bring them not only up-to-date but relevant and useable for many years to come – being more attractive to families and young people and local and regional hubs for leisure.” 

The refurbishments total £14.6million of investment by the council in the town’s leisure facilities on top of the provision of a new leisure centre on Farnham Road and the comprehensive refurbishment of the Ice Arena.

Langley Leisure Centre was built in 1997. The refurbishment will include:

  • an extension to the current gym to double the capacity
  • refurbished activity studios
  • repairs to the main pool
  • new internal design and decoration
  • increased parking provision
  • replacement of plant equipment and other machinery
  • upgrading ventilation and lighting.

The centre will close in June and is expected to fully reopen in summer 2018.

The work will be completed by Slough Urban Renewal – the 50:50 joint venture between the council and Morgan Sindall Investments Limited.
