Work is now complete on a brand-new £2.1m all-weather sports pitch in Battersea’s Falcon Park.

The pitch and its changing rooms were handed over to Wandsworth Council’s sports and leisure contractor Enable this week, which will now work to get them ready for the public to use from the first week of September.

As well as football, the 3G pitch can also be used for sports like rugby and cricket

Cabinet member for community services and open spaces Cllr Steffi Sutters said: “It’s great news that work is now complete on this pitch, which will be such a valuable resource for the people of Battersea – especially its young people.

“I’m also looking forward to seeing the other improvements planned for this much-loved neighbourhood park and I hope that everyone who took part in the consultation, and everyone who uses Falcon Park, is pleased with the result.”

It replaces four junior size grass pitches which the council said were "regularly deemed unplayable" in the winter months because of waterlogging.
