New community sports and leisure facilities
Sports and leisure
As part of the Kingsmere development in SW Bicester, a new £5 million sports and leisure facility has been built.
Whitelands Farm Sports Ground spreads over 17 hectares of land and provides three football pitches, two rugby pitches, a cricket ground, and a floodlit artificial 3G sports pitch. There’s also an outdoor gym, a cycling circuit and a jogging track.
In order to maximise the health benefits of these community assets, the team has worked with community groups to ensure that people of all ages and different levels of physical fitness are encouraged to use them. This includes their use by walking football teams and a junior park run.
Bicester Leisure Centre
Residents also benefit from Bicester Leisure Centre, offering a wide range of facilities, including modern gym, indoor sports hall, swimming pool and all weather sports pitches.
