Bath have released images of what the proposed new Recreation Ground will look like after architects were appointed earlier in the year to come up with plans for the redevelopment of the stadium.
Simon Pugh-Jones, Bath's in-house architect, said: "We believe the design expresses and celebrates the festival spirit of match days; brings new life and activity to the Recreation Ground and the riverside, and that draws from, and contributes to, the rich cultural and historic context of the city."
Nick Blofeld, Bath's chief executive, added: "To finally be able to reveal our vision for new facilities at the Rec to the people of Bath is a major milestone for us. We have been working towards these proposals for a long time, and our aim has always been not only to provide excellent facilities for our team and fans, but for other users of the Rec too. We also want to open up the riverside for residents and visitors alike, as it will be a great place to have a walk and have a different view of the Abbey and Parade Gardens.
"At all times our architects have been guided by the importance of retaining the unique atmosphere and character of the Rec, while respecting and responding to its iconic, sensitive and unique location."
Members of the public are invited to attend an exhibition of the designs, details of which can be seen here.
