The Olympic Legacy Park
The Olympic Legacy Park is a £55m project bringing together public and private funding, and is set to be part of an internationally recognised Innovation District for health and wellbeing research and learning.
It will host professional rugby of both codes as well as professional basketball, and sits alongside the English Institute of Sport Sheffield, iceSheffield, the Motorpoint Arena and the Sheffield Hallam University City Athletics Stadium, all of which host international competitions and professional sport.
The Park will also be home to the new Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, a collaboration between the Sheffield Hallam University Sports Engineering Research Centre, the National Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine, the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, as well as The Oasis Academy Don Valley – a school for 2-16 year olds.
The UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park will be an integral part of The Olympic Legacy Park and students will benefit from access to venues on the OLP and engage with the professionals that occupy them.
