The scheme has been conceived to replace the aging Chiltern pools complex and to provide modern updated accommodation for the Drake Hall community building, the library and the youth club / children’s nursery buildings currently on the site. The main ethos behind the scheme is collocation and the benefits of locating complimentary activities together such as U3A and libraries and perhaps exercise studios. Swimming pools and clip and climb will also work well with soft play and extensive cafe facilities.
The new community facility offers a wide variety of sport, leisure and community activities:-
8 lane 25m pool, Diving / training pool. Splash pad, Dry dive facilities, Spectator seating area, 2 squash courts, 4 court sports hall, Large fitness suite, Spin & dance studios. Spa zone, Café.
