“Wirral Youth Zone, named by young people as ‘The Hive’, is a purpose-built facility for the city’s young people aged 8 – 19, and up to 25 for those with disabilities.
The Youth Zone is located next to the new fire station on Bright St, in the centre of Birkenhead and opened on 8th April 2017. You can see the latest pictures of the Youth Zone here.
This infrastructure of facilities is based upon our 21st Century Youth Facility Model and young people from across Wirral have access to fantastic facilities for a cost of £5 for an annual membership and 50p per visit. The Youth Zone provides a safe environment where young people can come and enjoy themselves and enables young people to raise their aspirations and confidence to create a happier and healthier generation.” Read more
