The £8m development at the site at Brock on the A6 between Preston and Garstang in Lancashire. will offer premium entertainment, dining and leisure facilities, including only the second curling rink in the whole of England. The other is in Kent. Barton Grange's plan will generate at least 80 new jobs for the area.
In charge of the development is garden centre managing director Guy Topping. He said: "As always when you’re developing something on this scale, you have new ideas and want to make changes as you go along.
"We decided we wanted three cinema screens, to provide more film choice, and we wanted to add some high tech golf simulators. So the plans have been amended slightly and they’re now with Wyre Borough Council.
"We’re still planning to start work this autumn with a view to opening in autumn 2017."
Facilities will include a four sheet Curling Rink, luxury Ten Pin Bowling, a premium three-screen cinema, an all-weather Crazy Golf course and two golf simulators.
There will be two restaurants in the development, one of which will be a Fish and Chip restaurant, and there will be an Ice Cream and Coffee Shop.
The Flower Bowl will be a single storey building with a grass roof, which might eventually have sheep grazing on it.
"This is a major new development which will bring much needed entertainment and leisure facilities to the area," said Topping. "Our main target audience is the more mature market, although there will of course be many opportunities for families with young children to come along and get involved.
"We’re particularly excited about bringing curling facilities back to the north of England after a long absence. Our curling rink will be used by club curlers, social curlers and, we hope, local schools. Our intention is to develop a Centre of Excellence and maybe even discover and train some future Olympians."
