Completion of the Hardings Park Project
An official celebration of the completion of the Hardings Park project and the creation of a leisure hub for Gillingham will be held on Saturday, 15th July from 11.30am till 4pm. The event will be hosted by Gillingham Town Council in partnership with the RiversMeet Leisure Centre.
The skate park will be officially opened with a ‘Skate Jam’ from 12 noon with numerous prizes on offer.
The outside table tennis facility and multi-use games area will be officially opened at 11.45am. RiversMeet Leisure Centre will be providing a BBQ and Italian ice cream at reasonable prices.
The table tennis facility will be dedicated to the late Mr Alan Hislop – a veteran international table tennis player who died earlier this year and was an enthusiastic ambassador for the sport and keen to see a table tennis facility included as part of the refurbishment of Hardings Park.
The multi-use games area is suitable for football and basketball and free to use. As part of the celebration, we hope that ball skills will be demonstrated by local football and basketball players.
The Adventure Play Area nearby was officially opened last June and has been extremely popular with local families and visitors.
We invite the whole community to join us for this celebration.
