Planning permission has been granted to start construction of the Sharks brand new home - the Park Community Arena, which will be located on the newly founded Olympic Legacy Park where Don Valley Stadium previously stood.
Designed to complement the existing sporting facilities on the OLP, including the English Institute of Sport Sheffield and iceSheffield, the multi-purpose, Park Community Arena will have three basketball courts and seating for up to 2,500 spectators.
It will provide flexible sports facilities and event spaces for the local community as well as those based at the AWRC, UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park and Oasis Academy Don Valley, located on the OLP.
Park Community Arena will also act as the new headquarters for Sheffield events procurement and delivery company, MLS Contracts Ltd.
Richard Caborn stated:
“The Park Community Arena will be a fantastic addition to the facilities on the OLP and, combined with the English Institute of Sport Sheffield, iceSheffield and the Sheffield Arena, it will enhance the city’s offer and provide even more opportunities for Sheffield people to improve their health and wellbeing.”
We cannot wait to move in!
