Plymouth Life Centre

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Plymouth Life Centre is a leisure centre in Central Park, Plymouth run by Everyone Active in partnership with Plymouth City Council. Its facilities include a family leisure pool, a climbing wall, an eight-lane indoor bowls centre, currently (2015) the only 12 court multipurpose sports hall in Devon, fitness suite, a 10 lane 50-metre Olympic standard swimming pool, an Olympic standard diving pool, along with dryside training facilities, sauna, steam room, showers and a multipurpose area for dance and martial arts.[1] The climbing wall facility is managed by High Sports.[2] The aquatic facilities are the largest facility in southern England and were used by several teams training for the 2012 Olympics.[3] The Life Centre replaces the Mayflower Centre and Central Park Leisure Pools.[4] It opened in March 2012 at a cost of £46.5m.[5]

Following the announcement that Gyms and Leisure Centres could open on the 25th July, Plymouth city council announced that following investigations by themselves and the contractors, Balfour Beatty, urgent repair work needed to be done to the building. This would include stripping the pool and changing rooms back to the base concrete and laying new waterproof layers. The life centre will remain closed until April 2021 whilst the work is undertaken
