Leisure centre nears completion


Dawn joined the Lord Mayor and other guests for a first look round Bristol’s brand new leisure centre at Hengrove Park.    Work is continuing apace to ensure the centre is ready for the February 29 opening and the centre looks set to be a regional hub for sport and fitness, with an Olympic size swimming pool, fitness centre, multi-use sports hall, dance studio, café and plenty of other spaces to promote fitness and exercise.

Commenting after the visit, Dawn said:

“The leisure centre is looking fantastic and, thanks to a great deal of hard work from the contractors, is all set to open on time.  Everything is really taking shape, and the equipment will be installed in the new year.  It’s great news for Bristol South and I know that people will flock to the centre when it opens in the spring.”

The leisure centre is an integral part of the Hengrove Park development which includes the South Bristol Hospital which will also open in 2012.  There will be a range of membership and pay as you use options for local residents and the centre will also be open for rehabilitation for hospital patients.  

Designed and built by Tangent Snowball. Hosted by Rackspace, 2 Longwalk Road, Stockley Park, Uxbridge, UB11 1BA.
