Climb­ing high at new £5m cen­tre

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

The pro­posed Olympic-grade climb­ing walls at Ferry Mead­ows would be the coun­try’s only pur­pose-built fa­cil­ity of its type. It will fea­ture a wall of 20 me­tres plus for lead climb­ing and 15 me­tres high for speed climb­ing. It will also in­clude a wall for boul­der­ing climbs and one of the coun­try’s largest Clip ‘n’ Climb are­nas.

There will be out­door climb­ing walls, of­fer­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to climb to the top of the tower for views across the park. It is also planned to cre­ate a tree top ex­pe­ri­ence ac­cessed from the build­ing.

Aimed at fam­ily users, there would also be a tod­dlers’ play fa­cil­ity, an ad­di­tional café and pri­vate hire fa­cil­i­ties. The cen­tre will be built in the ex­ist­ing car park at Lake­side. A new car park will be cre­ated be­tween the cur­rent car park and the over­flow car park at Oak Meadow.

Matthew Bradbury, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Nene Park.
