The transformation of Gunnersbury is well underway. Over the past few years, the museum has been completely renovated, historic buildings have been conserved and landscape features re-introduced.

A hub for sports

The next phase of our 15-year masterplan, Gunnersbury 2026, will unlock the potential of the sports facilities within the park. We plan to transform the western side of the park into a high quality public recreational space that is sustainable. It will become a true destination for the local community and beyond.

By creating state-of-the-art facilities, we will be able to provide year-round activities across a wide range of sports. The plans include:

  • An indoor community sports hub with a five-court sports hall, changing rooms, toilets, café/bar, office and classrooms
  • Eight outdoor tennis courts with floodlights
  • Ten grass pitches, including rugby and adult and junior football pitches
  • Four cricket pitches
  • Two full-size 3G artificial grass pitches with floodlights

On 14 January 2016 the London Borough of Hounslow’s planning committee approved the planning application for the Gunnersbury Sports Hub. Following this, a contractor was procured and the first priority was the redevelopment of the tennis courts. Construction of the sports hub building is due to start in 2018. The hub is scheduled to open in summer 2019.

In order to develop the highest quality facilities, we’re working with a number of sporting organisations. They include the Lawn Tennis Association, England and Wales Cricket Board and Parklife (a football hub programme supported by the Football Association, Premier League and Sport England).
