In August, draft plans for a completely new and improved leisure centre at Castle Farm Recreation Centre were approved and we’re set to have some of the very best facilities in the country right here in Kenilworth. In addition, the Kenilworth Wardens are looking to create a new home for their club in the fields next to the Recreation Centre. We want this new centre and the new home for Kenilworth Wardens to be well used sports facilities that the entire community can enjoy. Of course, different people will be looking for different things from these two facilities and so before the build begins we’d like to share our plans with you and get your views, so that we can make these projects a success for everyone. View the plans further down the page.
Castle Farm Recreation Centre will boast the following new facilities:
- 80 station gym
- Two exercise studios - offering a range of group fitness classes, including spin bikes
- Six court sports hall
- Stylish changing facilities and lockers
- Light and bright reception area and foyer making the most of the parkland setting
- New outdoor changing rooms for customers using football pitches
- A new petanque terrain for our local enthusiasts
- Exciting ‘interactive’ room using virtual reality technology
- Greatly increased parking facilities
The new home for Kenilworth Wardens will include:
- Space for up to 13 football pitches of various sizes
- 3 high quality cricket pitches
- A full-size artificial turf pitch
- A multi-use games area for sports such as netball
- All-weather cricket practice nets
- A clubhouse with social areas and changing rooms
- A large car parking area
- Good access for the public around the outside of the site

Kenilworth Scouts and Guides:
Kenilworth Scouts and Guides have their headquarters on the first floor of the current Castle Farm Recreation Centre. They have been there for around 30 years. Warwick District Council is very aware that any redevelopment of the Centre will have to provide a suitable new home for the Scouts and Guides, who are an invaluable addition to the town.
The new design proposals include a ‘semi-detached’ section of the new building for the Scouts and Guides. This can be seen to the right of the sports hall and store in this image. The Council is working closely with the Scouts and Guides to ensure that this brand new construction will give the two organisations the facility they need for the next 30 years.
