The Wellesley Sport Center, is a massive 130,000 sq. ft. multi use recreation facility that will feature two NHL regulation ice surfaces (one fully sled hockey compatible), indoor synthetic turf field, competition swimming pool, warm up pool, sports rehabilitation, and strength training. All of this will be conveniently located at 900 Worcester Street (Route 9). This is a public-private partnership between ESG and the Town of Wellesley, MA, slated for opening in the spring of 2019.
The town brought the land to the table: ESG responded to, and was awarded the RFP and negotiated a 50-year land lease — taking the control, construction and future operation out of the hands of the town. Once the center opens, preferred ice and pool times will be given to Wellesley High School, Wellesley Youth Hockey, Dana Hall, and the Wellesley Swim Association. The center will also offer recreational skating and pool times to the public. In addition, the facility will be available to rent to other area organizations and sports groups.
