Work is well underway on the £20.8 million Five Towns Leisure and Wellbeing Hub in Pontefract Park.
Due to open in early 2021, the hub will be the largest of its kind ever built in the Wakefield district. Facilities will include a 10-lane swimming pool, studio pool with moveable floor, and a splash pad water confidence area.
There will also be a gym, exercise studios, climbing activity, café and soft play area, meeting and referral rooms for community use, tennis courts, a wellbeing garden and interactive play area, a full size 3G artificial grass pitch, and car parking.
This month has seen the external façade almost complete – you will see how well it complements the wider park.
The first floor has been decorated with a mist coat.
The spinning studio is looking exciting and will provide an interactive experience for Aspire members.
Social distancing has impacted the work on the pool hall as we make sure staff are kept safe.
Join us next month and stay safe.
We're following the government guidelines on social distancing to make sure all our workforce are safe.
This has meant that some of our work has had to be done differently and this includes the glazing at the front of the building.
The testing on the studio pool is complete and it is drying out, the main pool is still under test.
Timber cladding is almost complete and we have taken giant leaps forward with electrical works in the building.
