Plans for the Tingley site include a large garden center with a 1,000m2 plant canopy and 2,000m2 of outdoor retail space, a 400-seat restaurant, an indoor/outdoor Grass Hoppers game and a Hearty’s Food Hall. .

The existing golf center building will be the center of Mission Out, a five-acre adventure playground for children ages 6-14.

It includes things like high ropes, assault courses, giant swings, adventure golf, and lake rafting.

It is scheduled for a summer 2022 opening.

Yesterday (Wednesday 25), the garden center also announced plans for a further site near Wetherby; however, that is still subject to planning permission.

The company is currently hiring staff for the original and new sites.
