Lakeside Activity Centre

This project is to create a state-of-the-art, Olympic standard climbing facility. We will locate the Activity Centre at Ferry Meadows, run by the Nene Park Trust in Peterborough.

The site will feature:

  • One of the country's largest Clip 'n Climb arenas, suitable for all the family
  • A nature themed toddler arena
  • A cafe
  • Spaces for community groups to hire

The project will create 31 new jobs.

Project status

This project is ongoing.

We secured planning permission for this project in March 2021. Phase One infrastructure and car park were completed in 2023. Phase Two, which includes creating the Activity Centre remains ongoing.

Following Towns Fund approval of the business case, we secured £1.5million from the Government for the build. The Nene Park Trust will pay the remainder, along with other funding streams.
