Ensbury Park Community Centre
Ensbury park community centre is run by a small group of volunteers on the edge of Slades Farm.
Ensbury Park Community Centre was built in the 1990’s when Ensbury Park Residents Association fought to have a community building in the area.
The main hall was redecorated in December 2013, new curtains fitted to windows and energy efficient lighting installed. A new heating system is being installed before winter 2014. A trial of a small café will take place during the summer of 2014 for weekends and public holidays.
The Community Centre has one large hall to hire for community activities and meetings and hold between 150-200 people. The hall is fitted with a loop system for the hearing impaired. It is also possible to arrange for a small stage to be assembled.
There is a kitchen facility which is available for use when you hire the centre if you wish. Chairs and tables are also available. There is a large car park in front of the Community Centre.
Behind the centre there is a velodrome which is also available for community use. You can find more information on this subject at the Ensbury Park and Wallisdown Area Forum website.
Ensbury Park Community Centre is situated next to a wonderful large park surrounded by woodland. The park consists of a play park for children and a large stake/BMX track which is very popular with local skaters. The park also hosts the weekly football and cycling activities. A Park Guardians scheme will start in Slades Farm in Summer 2014.
If you are interested in volunteering, we would love to hear from you, please get in touch. The more volunteers we have means the centre can offer more activities and operate more efficiently. Volunteering is good on anyone's CV and great fun most of the time!
