Orford Jubilee Park is the biggest Olympic legacy site outside London. It represents the culmination of a 15-year project to develop a flagship community, leisure, health and education centre for Warrington. Officially opened by HRH Queen Elizabeth II on 17 May 2012, it is the first example of a sustainable community sports hub.
Situated on a former landfill site next to a Victorian park, the development includes the private sector Decathlon retail unit and provides externally-lit pathways around the outdoor sports facilities and park.
The project was developed through a unique partnership involving over twenty national, regional and local funding partners from the public, private and voluntary sectors and the 25-year lifecycle costs will be met from the Community Investment Fund.
