Improving our leisure centres

We’re investing £105 million as part of our ten year Leisure Transformation Programme to improve our leisure centres, programmes and services. The programme will be a phased approach and will include areas that have joined us as part of Local Government Reform.

Please note that Andersonstown Leisure Centre is now closed to enable work to start on our new £25 million state-of-the-art centre, due to open in summer 2019.  Andersonstown Leisure Centre members can now use the facilities at our other leisure centres in the city at no extra cost. Read more about the new centre.
