Coming soon to Meadowbank Park in Dorking

Progress continues to be made at Meadowbank Recreation Ground in Dorking as the new community-based sports facility takes shape.

The new facilities represent another exciting step in the continued development of Meadowbank, following the opening of Mole Valley's high-profile showpiece playground in the park and addition of new outdoor fitness equipment last year.

It will feature:

  • 3G artificial grass football pitch

  • Changing facilities

  • Club house

  • Spectator stands

  • Floodlighting

  • Soft play

  • Café

  • Public toilets

Work began on site in September 2016, beginning with the ground being levelled off, all excess soil removed and foundations for the buildings made. Scaffolding continues to rise and progress at Meadowbank can be seen on a daily basis.

£8 million has been invested towards the provision of the state-of-the-art community football facilities. That includes a £6.5million investment by Mole Valley District Council, 1 million by Surrey County Football Association to fund the build of their new headquarters and 500,000 through the Sport England Improvement Fund.

The new development will be widely utilised by many local football teams and play host to Dorking Wanderers.

Surrey County Football Association will also be moving into their new headquarters in Meadowbank.

The facilities are expected to open soon.
