I am interested in hiring the Northern Neighbourhood Community Centre. Please could you advise how to book?

When will Boundary Park be opened?
The nature of the new pitch, which has been installed at Boundary Park, means that it requires some time to ‘bed in’ before it can be made available for use by the general public. Timescales for this will be weather-dependent, and the eventual opening of the pitch will be subject to inspections, however we are hopeful that the park and the Pavilion will be open by the end of summer 2016.
What facilities are available at Boundary Park?
Boundary Park has pitches for football, cricket and rugby. The Pavilion also offers many facilities including a bar, a kitchen, changing facilities and an outdoor terrace.
How can we apply to regularly use the pitches at Boundary Park?
The sports facilities are run by the Boundary Park Sports Association. If you would like to find out more about access to the pitches and pavilion, please enquire through the website www.boundarypark.org.
