Westmead Activity Centre
Construction work started in November 2020 to build the Westmead Activity Centre on our land at Westmead Playing Fields, Chippenham. The Arc climbing centre and skatepark is due to open in Spring 2022 and will be run by The Climbing Academy.
We are funding the building of the new centre which includes a climbing centre, skatepark, cafe and landscaping. The climbing centre will be the first designed from the ground up centre for miles around and will offer roped climbing, auto belay and bouldering. It also includes an amazing outdoor climbing area. We are grateful to Sport England who are providing funding of £100,000 towards the climbing centre.
We know that Chippenham skateboarders have waited over a decade to have a place of their own. Thanks to funding assistance from Wiltshire Council, we are are also building a custom designed skate park. Designed by the leading experts at CANVAS, this will be a fantastic facility for skateboarders of all ages.
