It will be used by Blackburn Harriers Athletics Club as a training facility year round, coaching 100s of aspiring young athletes.

The new arena also has a 45 station Fitness Suite with views across the park, changing rooms and a fitness studio for spinning and exercise classes.

The project also includes refurbishment to the existing track and amendments to track layout, relocation of the pole vault and construction of perimeter fencing.

Martin Eden, Director for Leisure, Culture and Young People said: "This is a first class athletics and fitness facility in a spectacular setting within Witton Park. The facilities are amazing and I would like to thank the Harriers for their help in creating a facility which will transform athletics in the borough. The interest in the arena has been fantastic, please feel free to come along and have a look round."
