Some of the activities you can do at Warrington Youth Zone

TODAY, Saturday, marks the long-awaited opening of the new £7.05million Warrington Youth Zone.

The establishment, in project for 14 years, finally opens its doors today to the young people of the commune.

Speaking about the opening, general manager Dave McNicholl previously told the Warrington Guardian: “The most important thing for us is that people recognize this as the youth zone of Warrington.

“So it’s all about all the organizations that work with children and young people being able to come here and have access to amazing facilities.

“This is the network’s 14th youth zone across the country and it gives Warrington residents access to some of the fantastic facilities available to young people across the country.”

There is plenty to do in the youth zone which has been described as a ‘world buffet’ due to the amount of things on offer.

But we thought we’d pick seven of the most exciting activities you can take part in at Dallam Lane.

The charity’s facility includes a fully accessible rock climbing wall.

It has 13 strings and an overhang.

The music room has various instruments with which young people can practice.

Qualified staff will be on hand to assist you.

A recording studio is also on site.
