Two newly-built leisure centres are set to open their doors in Belfast next month as part of the city council's £105m Leisure Transformation Programme.

The £20m Lisnasharragh Leisure Centre and the £15m Brook Leisure Centre will both open during December 2019.

Facilities at the Lisnasharragh site will include a 25m, eight-lane pool with 250 spectator seats; a learner pool with movable floor and diving provision; and a "confidence water" area for small children and toddlers.

There will also be a health club with a 140-station fitness suite, an indoor cycling studio and group exercise studios.

Other amenities include a sports hall, outdoor football pitches and a café.

Facilities at Brook Leisure Centre include a 25-metre, four-lane pool, a sports hall and a 60-station health club with exercise studios.

Outdoor facilities include a full-size, 3G football pitch, three covered and three uncovered 3G five-a-side pitches, a hurling wall and an outdoor gym.

Both centres will be operated on behalf of Belfast City Council by social enterprise GLL.

The openings are two of seven key projects being developed as part of the £105m plans.

“Leisure Transformation is a fantastic opportunity for all of us as we work across the city ensuring our new leisure centres each have their own unique selling point, minimising duplication and ensuring balanced, value-for-money investment," said Matt Garrett, chair of Belfast City Council’s strategic policy and resources committee.
