Colchester Sports Park

Boasting one of the largest cycle tracks in the East of England, Colchester Sports Park at Northern Gateway opened its doors in July 2021. 

With a range of facilities including 1-mile cycle track, a BMX Pump Track, bike hire including accessible bikes, a Techno gym, football pitches, a cycle safety training area plus a cosy Paddy & Scott’s coffee shop, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

You can take part in rugby, football, badminton, cricket, netball, futsal, table tennis and more.

The sport’s park offers a great place to celebrate birthdays by hiring the BMX Pump Track, sports hall or booking a sports themed party. Home to the Colchester Rugby and Football Club and the future home to Colchester and District Archery Club, at Colchester Northern Gateway Sports Park you can join the gym, eat out, walk in the fresh air, or play sport in a safe and convenient space, helping you get active with the whole family.
