Birmingham City Council (BCC) and DC Leisure have launched the new £12.2m Harborne Pool and Fitness Centre, which is located on the site of the city's former Harborne Baths.

It is the first new public swimming pool built in Birmingham for more than 20 years. Wates Construction delivered the building and architects Saunders Boston were behind the design.

Harborne Pool and Fitness Centre boasts a 25m, six-lane swimming pool and a learner pool - in addition to a 70-station adult fitness suite equipped by Pulse, PowerPlate and Trixter.

Facilities also include a large dance and aerobics studio and a smaller gym for young people aged between eight- and 16-years old. An official opening is planned for 28 January.

DC Leisure was appointed by the local authority to operate the venue in December as part of a 10-year management contract, which includes the option of a five-year extension.

BCC cabinet member for leisure, sport and culture Martin Mullaney said: "Harborne Pool and Fitness Centre sets the standard for future public swimming provision in the city."

DC Leisure business development director Tim Hewett added: "With the Olympics just a few months away, Harborne Pool and Fitness Centre is well positioned to welcome those looking to take on a healthier and more active lifestyle."
