Work is progressing on transforming Derby Racecourse into a vibrant community space with the development of the Football Hub. The Hub will host a community building with three new outside full-size 3G football turf pitches (FTPs) and refurbishment of the existing FTP.
The benefits of the Football Hub extend beyond sports facilities and Derby Racecourse will be much more than just a place to play sports. The vision is to bring life into the park offering a wide range of activities for everyone in the community to enjoy.
The Derby Racecourse transformation involves the revitalisation of play areas and the outdoor gym, which will include accessible equipment. A new basketball court suitable for 3×3 player games will be installed and the trim trail has already been revamped to offer a more engaging recreational experience.
Plans have been submitted for approval for the extension of pathways around the Racecourse Park, ensuring improved accessibility, and the addition of new benches. The project also includes an increase in parking spaces to accommodate visitors more comfortably. Furthermore, a community café with a Changing Places WC will be provided to enhance the overall experience for all park visitors.
