Transforming leisure services

Lisnasharragh Leisure Centre regeneration

  • Current status

    We have invested £20 million in a new state-of-the-art leisure facility in east Belfast on the site of the former Robinson Centre on Montgomery Road.

    The new centre is now open for pre-sale sign ups and Avoniel members. For more information visit the Lisnasharragh Leisure Centre page on the Better website or email

  • Unique selling point

    Following community consultation and advice from a range of industry experts, we decided that the new centre should focus largely on wet provision and be an aquatic centre for the city.

    In addition to extensive wet provision, the new facility also offers a range of dry facilities such as a state-of-the-art fitness suite, sports hall and studios.

    The agreed facilities are:

    • 25 metre by eight lane gala pool with 250 spectator seats
    • learner pool with movable floor and diving provision
    • confidence water for small children and toddlers
    • 140 station fitness suite
    • exercise studios
    • spin studio
    • sports hall
    • cafĂ©
    • community facility
    • multipurpose room
    • range of outdoor provision including a five-a-side pitch
