Leisure centre at Girdwood
Work is underway to develop options for a new leisure centre at the Girdwood site in north Belfast.
Following extensive consultation and engagement over the last few years, it has been agreed that it will include a swimming pool along with changing rooms for the existing outdoor 3G pitch.
Details of the other facilities for the centre are now being considered, with a public consultation on final plans due to take place later this year before work proceeds.
Funding and timeline
We’ve committed £6 million to the centre through our Leisure Transformation Programme.
We’re working with the Department for Communities on the project. Once plans are finalised, it is hoped that additional funding will be secured to allow construction to get underway next year (2022).
