Other Info:
The original track here was built in the 1920s and was cinder and 3 laps to the mile. It was subsequently shortened to 440y in 1951 and then to 400m in the late 1960s. The GLC put up 350K to upgrade it to a Spurtan BS synthetic track and the opening meeting was on 26th June 1983. At the end of May 1999, the track closed for a year to replace the old pavilion with a new two-storey one, to build a covered stand alongside the home straight and to upgrade the track from 6 lanes all round to 8 lanes. The cost of this was 2.6M and was jointly funded by Wandsworth Council and a Lottery Sports Award. The track was built by Ballast Wiltshier and H.E. Construction Services Ltd. and has a Polytan WS surface which is very soft. It is now officially known as the Millennium Arena but previously it was just called Battersea Park Athletics Track. The downstairs of the pavilion is for athletics changing and the upstairs is a fitness centre. It was first used for a Scouts meeting on 21st May, opened to the public for training on 22nd May, was officially opened by Tessa Sanderson on 1st June and the official track opening meeting was on 4th June 2000.
