Overview

Leisure in Eastwood: Looking to the future

The Eastwood Park Leisure complex was built more than 40 years ago to provide facilities for residents in the former Eastwood District. Following four decades of use, the building and the swimming pool are now reaching the end of their natural lifespan. This gives the Council an opportunity to consider how we can best improve facilities to meet the needs of our residents for the next 40 years.

The current leisure centre includes a 25m swimming pool, sauna and steam room area and a small gym. Adjoining the leisure centre is a café, theatre and community hall.

In recent years a number of neighbouring councils have invested in large new leisure centres which offer a wide range of sports, health and leisure facilities all in one facility.

In addition, over the last four decades our population has increased significantly and we want to have leisure facilities available to meet this changing demand. As well as providing for competitive sports, we also need to cater for the rising interest in health and fitness, including providing specially designed spaces for classes and spin studios.

So the Council is considering a range of potential options to ensure residents are provided with the best facilities to meet their needs and those of future generations.

Why We Are Consulting

To gather residents' views on which of the four potential options for developing leisure provision within the Eastwood area is preferred by the public.

This consultation includes a summary of the options. Here is the full report which was considered by the Council’s Cabinet in December 2017.

The options include continuing to run the centre on a maintenance basis only, refurbishment, redeveloping the existing site with an extension or scoping out the potential for creating a new state-of-the-art leisure and recreational facility on a different site within Eastwood.
