A €12 million plan is set to redevelop the Parade Ring with the addition of new hospitality venues and a new racecourse administrative building.
As part of the redevelopment plan, the parade ring will be revamped and modernised to make the area a key focal point within the racecourse. The plans also see the addition of a pre-parade ring, directly adjacent to the main parade ring. New hospitality venues with a high standard of decor would be located to the north and south of the parade ring, incorporating a bar, restaurant, betting and toilet facilities.
The first floor of the existing Millennium Grandstand will also be refurbished with a new fully glazed wall facing the track, along the full length of the Millennium Stand. Included will be facilities for a new Owners & Trainers Lounge and a separate annual members’ facility.
The project also includes a new racecourse administrative building – the current office building to be repurposed for both male and female jockeys, with enhanced hospitality facilities.
The design of the new development is expected to commence in early 2019, with plans to start construction within the next three to four years. It is hoped that the design team for the development will be announced in January 2019.
