A new £2m football centre which consists of 10 3G five-a-side pitches has been opened near the site of the old BBC Television Centre in Shepherds Bush
Designed by LK2 Architects, the 11,800sq m Hammersmith Park Football Centre includes space to build more pitches, and a community-focused pavilion with a cafe, bar, changing rooms and space for a number of cycle racks.
PlayFootball - the organisation which operates Football Association (FA) accredited venues - won the tender to deliver the facility and will provide long-term management for the site.
Andy Newman, associate at LK2, said the London and Lincoln-based firm "worked hard to understand the area and the needs of the community", adding: "Our design was developed to provide local people with a centre that allowed them to experience the positive benefits associated with participating in sport."
PlayFootball's Steve Bennett said that the partnership with Hammersmith and Fulham Council provided a facility to "benefit the whole community".
