Chance to quiz Sheffield Olympic park leaders

Have your say

Plans for a £50 million Olympic Legacy Park on the site of Sheffield’s Don Valley Stadium will be presented to the public next week.

The facility will include a sports science research centre, school and university technical college, plus sports and events arena.

South East Sheffield MP, Clive Betts, and project lead, Richard Caborn, are hosting community event at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield on Thursday, March 12 at 6pm.

Presentations will be followed by a question and answer session so people can quiz project leaders.

Mr Caborn said: “The Olympic Legacy Park is a hugely exciting development for Sheffield and this event will be an opportunity for local people to hear about plans for the site, progress being made and how they can benefit from the facilities.

“As well as being a world-class site centre for health and wellbeing research, the park will be designed with public facilities for the local community to use for sport, leisure and recreation.”

The Olympic Legacy Park is a joint venture between Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Sheffield Council.
