Another expanded city investment is being prepared in Krakow. The Sports Infrastructure Management Board has presented a design for a multi-zone "Krakowianka" physical activity center to be built in Borek Fałęcki, on the site of a former sports complex. ZIS estimates that the cost of the works will be around PLN 140 million. What specifically does the project envisage?

In mid-July, the Sports Infrastructure Management Board of Krakow presented a project for the construction of the "Krakowianka" District Sports and Recreation Center, which will be built on Zywiecka Boczna Street in Borek Fałęcki (Łagiewniki district). This is the site of a once thriving, but now heavily dilapidated, sports and recreation complex.

multi-zone physical activity center

The center project is extensive and expensive - the estimated value of the investment is PLN 140 million. The area of the complex will be divided into outdoor and indoor parts, and additionally into zones. The indoor part will be formed by three buildings. The main one will house a swimming pool measuring 25 by 16 meters. There will also be saunas, a Jacuzzi and an expanded fitness area. Another building will house a sports hall. A full-size futsal, handball, basketball and volleyball court is planned there. In turn, on the first floor, in addition to the sports hall, locker rooms, facilities for coaches, storage rooms and an entrance hall with a relaxation area will be located. Also noteworthy is a three-story building intended for parking. It is designed to accommodate about 112 vehicles. Each level will include restrooms and a circulation area. The parking structure will be connected to the main building of the center by an overground connector.

According to the Sports Infrastructure Management Board, the main building, the sports hall building and the parking building will be connected to each other by an overhead connector. All this in order to make communication between them as collision-free as possible.
