A new urban sports park, believed to be the first of its kind in the world, is coming to Folkestone in 2020. The development has been funded by the Roger De Haan Charitable Trust, whose investment has helped to drive millions of pounds into the district, from the regeneration of Folkestone Old Town to the transformative Folkestone Harbour Arm.
