Olympic Grade Climbing Centre
The scheme includes a clip and climb arena, an Olympic-standard climbing facility, a toddler play area, cafe and private hire spaces. At 34.25 metres high, the Climbing Wall section of the development will be one of the tallest buildings in Peterborough.
The project is part of Nene Park Trust’s 10-year strategy to become the region’s favourite park by creating improved leisure, recreation and cultural facilities for the city. This scheme forms part of the Trust's Masterplan for the next 30 years, which aims to ensure more use of the park and extend the park’s reach across the city, promoting healthy lifestyles, building communities and celebrating culture.
The event includes talks from key project stakeholders who will provide background to the scheme and a technical overview of Architectural and Structural design and challenges.
