A new destination for sport in Essex
The Northern Gateway Sports Park, part of Leisure World, is a 76 acre site providing both indoor and outdoor sport and leisure activities.
The Sports Park is unique to Essex and features a 1 mile floodlit cycle track. This facility is a safe space for both leisurely and challenging cycling. The track will have cycling provisions for people with disabilities and for those with special needs.
The Sports Park has a multi-use sports centre, indoor cricket facilities, a fitness suite and exercise and cycle studios. It has a new state-of-the-art rugby facility which will become the new home of Colchester Rugby Football Club along with two all weather pitches, additional grass pitches and an archery range for local clubs.
There is ample parking at the Colchester Northern Gateway with a surface car park of 300 spaces. This can be used by customers of Colchester Northern Gateway Sports Park and members of Colchester Rugby Club and Colchester Archery Club.
There’s acres of space to explore – whether for picnics, rambles, or kick-abouts with friends. Plus our new Paddy & Scott’s cafe is a great play to refuel or catch up with friends and family.
