Family activity centre on the way

Published: 25 April 2017

The ten pin bowling alley at Salt Hill Park is to close on 7 May to make way for a brand new activity centre packed full of fun for all the family.

The announcement of the closure date comes as the council releases the latest artist’s impressions of what the new centre could look like.

The new centre – due to open in March 2018 – will include:

  • ten pin lanes in a separate area with its own bar
  • large soft play area for six-months to nine year olds
  • ski plex zone for skiing and snowboarding all year round
  • trampolining zone with basketball hoops and battle pits
  • hire-wire climbing zone with tight ropes and suspended mid-air tubes
  • party rooms
  • café
  • bar
  • additional car parking spaces

Councillor Joginder Bal, commissioner for leisure and environment, said: “The more I see the plans for this new activity centre, the more I am excited about what an amazing facility this will be for local families.

“The range of activities people can take part in is incredible and no longer will people have to schlep from one site to another to take part in fun everyone can enjoy – it will be right there, all in one place.”

Work to create the new family activity centre is expected to take nine months and will be undertaken on behalf of the council by Slough Urban Renewal (SUR) a partnership between Slough Borough Council and Morgan Sindall Investments Ltd which is driving regeneration across the town including in leisure, housing, community and school buildings.

Councillor Bal added: “For anyone worried about what to do with the kids while the new facility is being built, we have a whole range of activities planned by the Get Active team as well as the temporary ice rink and Montem Leisure Centre just across the road.”
