The future of Basingstoke Leisure Park

Proposals to bring exciting new attractions to Basingstoke Leisure Park and make it a great place to spend time, with green spaces to relax in and a range of free outdoor activities, were adopted by Cabinet in 2023.

Basingstoke Leisure Park is a well-loved facility enjoyed by many residents and their families. But it needs to be updated and improved as the facilities at the park were mostly developed in the 1980s and 1990s.

A team of experts was appointed to advise the council, as the owner of the leisure park site, on the future opportunities presented by the redevelopment.

The proposals were drawn up after listening to comments and views given in a consultation that ran during February and March 2022.

These webpages outline the master plan that has been adopted and what the council is doing to bring new leisure attractions to the leisure park, as well as working with existing operators to improve existing facilities.

What has been approved

We have developed a master plan for the leisure park to set an overall vision and guide future development proposals. Working with the leisure industry, we have been investigating potential new attractions.

In the consultation, those responding told us that they want the leisure park to offer great leisure facilities and attractions, make better use of the open space and offer more free activities for people to enjoy there. That’s why the master plan focuses on making it great for leisure and a great park.

Next steps

The draft master plan was adopted by the council’s Cabinet in January 2023.

To advance the proposals in the master plan, further investigation work, such as technical studies and work to explore the utilities currently on site, is under way. We are also continuing discussions to explore new attractions and operators that can be brought to the park.

Due to the scale of the project, we anticipate that proposals will be delivered in a phased approach, over a number of years, developing previously undeveloped land on the park and working with specialists in the leisure industry.

As a key priority for the council, plans to develop a new Aquadrome and ensure it remains a popular facility in the future are being progressed.
