THE FIRST image of what Worcester’s new £10.5million eight-lane swimming pool will look like has been released, as the ambitious project nears completion.
Worcester City Council has provided an artists impression of the new Perdiswell Leisure Centre pool, which is undergoing the final touches with the steel support structure of the main pool being put in place before opening in early 2017.
The centre’s pool will measure 25 metre by 18 metre and will boast seating for 250 spectators, as well as featuring a learner pool with movable floor, gym, sports hall, fitness studio and teaching rooms.
Coun Jabba Riaz, cabinet member for clean, green and leisure services said: “It’s great to be able to show people what the finished pool will look like, as it gives a real sense of the fantastic quality we’re achieving with this complete overhaul of Perdiswell Leisure Centre.
“The pool will have everything you need to host regional competitions, but most importantly it’ll be a great new facility for swimmers of all abilities, from across Worcester and beyond.
“I’m particularly proud that when it opens next year, the new-look centre will boast full accessibility to wheelchair users, not just to the pool itself, but to all the great features we’re packing in.”
