Sun Lane Leisure is fully accessible for people with disabilities, with a lift to the second floor and the gym so all floors are accessible. There is also accessible changing, level access and hoists into both pools. A key feature to be included in Sun Lane Leisure is a Changing Places facility.
These facilities are for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well as other serious impairments including spinal injuries or acquired brain injury.
Features include height adjustable adult-sized changing benches, a tracking hoist system, space for the user and up to two carers, centrally placed toilet and screens for extra privacy.
This changing facility will be available for anyone visiting the city and not just users of the facility.
We hope the new centre will have a positive impact on the area and also be a great place for Wakefield district residents to get active and stay healthy.
The opening of Sun Lane Leisure comes during an inspirational year of sport. London hosting the 2012 games and team GB’s amazing performance has not only inspired a generation but also a nation.
