Residents Day at Legacy Youth Zone


04 April 2022

There were smiles all round as we welcomed residents to Croydon’s Legacy Youth Zone on Saturday 26 March for Residents Day. 

This free event offered exclusively to our residents from across Croydon and South London gave young people the opportunity to try out a range of fun activities from singing in the music room, playing games in the sports hall to throwing some shapes in the dance studio!

Legacy Youth Zone is proudly supported by Optivo and serves as a fun, safe and engaging space for young people open 7 days a week, 52 weeks of the year, where they can learn and develop new skills and talents while enjoying themselves.

At this state-of-the-art facility, young people have access to an indoor climbing wall, four-court sports hall, fully equipped gym, 3G all-weather pitch, music room with recording suite, training kitchen, dance studio, health and wellbeing room, arts and crafts area and much more!

On the day, residents were able to sample Caribbean flavours for lunch as we were served rice and peas and pulled pork with a Jamaican jerk twist. Everyone appreciated this delicious lunch!  

Optivo colleagues were also on hand to talk to residents about the services we provide and able to offer advice and support.  

Karen, an Optivo resident said: “It’s been great day out, my boys have loved all the activities. It’s been fantastic to discover Legacy Youth Zone as youth centres in Croydon are needed in the community so that young people can have fun and make friends in a safe space”.
