Whitnash's measured mile track moves to a new location

THE MEASURED mile track is ready for Whitnash residents at its new location.

As part of the new Whitnash Civic Centre and Library project, the already established measured mile track at Acre Close park needed to be moved.

But due to the footprint of the new building, and with the new football and rugby pitches being repositioned, it was clear that there was very limited scope to retain the measured mile track at Acre Close.

The original track had been installed using grant funding some years ago. And rather than lose the facility altogether, it was decided to look at the possibility of creating something similar at Washbourne Field instead.

Washbourne Field has benefited from considerable investment in recent times, thanks to Whitnash Town Council, who secured funding to completely replace and upgrade the play equipment, and put in new security measures, paths and benches.

The new measured mile track is the latest addition to Washbourne Field, and was funded by both the town council and Warwick District Council.
