Pictures: New-look Ennerdale Leisure Centre reopens to public

Ennerdale Leisure Centre is ready to reopen to the public after a £2m makeover.

The facility will reopen next week after closing last summer for a major refurbishment.

Doors will open at 9am Tuesday 28 January when visitors will be greeted with a new modern reception and cafe entrance, updated changing facilities and new disabled changing facilities.

A new gym and studio equipment has been funded by Hull Culture and Leisure.

A large part of the refurbishment has seen an overhaul of all of the centre’s electrical and mechanical services with upgrades of the filtration, ventilation and cold water systems, meaning the centre will now run much more efficiently.

Councillor Dave Craker, Hull City Council’s portfolio holder for leisure and culture, said: “The investment into this key city facility is a commitment from the council into enhancing the city’s leisure offer.

“It now provides an enhanced experience for users which I’m sure will prove to be more popular than ever before. We will continue to invest with refurbishments planned for both Beverley Road and Albert Avenue Baths.”

Councillor Marjorie Brabazon, chair of Hull Culture and Leisure, said: “We‘re delighted to have a new and improved Ennerdale back with us and our staff are really excited to welcome members and visitors back.

“It’s great to see the council spending money on leisure and HCAL were keen to mirror this by investing in new gym and studio equipment.”

Work to the sauna is still ongoing and will be available for public use next month.

New fitness memberships are now on sale here.
