Mile End Park Leisure Centre and Stadium

An award-winning £15m leisure complex which opened in its current form in 2005/6, Mile End Park Leisure Centre and Stadium is Tower Hamlets’ flagship leisure venue and boasts state-of-the-art training facilities. Set in the beautifully landscaped Mile End Park, close to the iconic Green Bridge, the complex is at the heart of the local community.

It is also excellently-equipped for elite athletes, and is already used as a training facility by a number of potential Olympic competitors. The leisure centre and stadium are both fully-accessible for people with disabilities, and have Inclusive Fitness Initiative Accreditation.

Mile End’s stadium has been the venue for numerous athletics events since it was first built in the 1945. Today, after extensive improvements and renovation that were completed in 2005, it provides first-class athletics facilities including a 400m, eight-lane athletics track, field facilities, as well as grass synthetic pitches and courts catering for other sports. (Additional facilities that are not permanently available can be supplied on request.) The stadium is home to a number of athletics clubs (including disability sports teams) and hosts major competitions every year.

Mile End Park Leisure Centre, which is immediately adjacent to the stadium, opened in 2006. Its facilities include a four- court sports hall, two swimming pools (including one competition standard pool), state-of-the-art fitness studios, and a health suite and sauna.

Tower Hamlets Council can provide transport for athletes, coaches and support staff from its extensive fleet of vehicles. Most of the council’s vehicles are wheelchair accessible, with lifts and wheelchair spaces fitted with rear impact protection seats.

Mile End Park Leisure Centre and Stadium are managed on behalf of the Tower Hamlets Council by Greenwich Leisure Ltd (GLL). GLL operate over 65 leisure centres and sporting venues across London, and have extensive experience of providing competition and training facilities for athletes at all levels.
