Revitalised Dungannon Leisure Centre to reopen

Dungannon Leisure Centre is set to reopen this weekend, revealing its new look to the public. The Centre, which has been undergoing extensive refurbishment since April last year, will open its doors on Friday 31 January 2020 with a full weekend of free activities to celebrate.

The £1.8 million works represent a significant investment in Dungannon and in leisure by Mid Ulster District Council, giving a welcome boost to the quality of leisure facilities which customers will experience and enjoy in the newly revitalised centre.

The work ensures the current building can continue to offer a high quality, broad range of leisure opportunities in a revitalised, more modern environment.
 
The centre’s swimming pools, fitness suite, changing facilities and reception area all have benefited from upgrades. Renovations to the pool include new tiling, pool linings, surrounds, filters and structural work, while the gym has been fitted out with a completely new range of fitness equipment. The centre’s squash court has also been revamped.
 
Additional lighting and car parking spaces have been installed at the front of the Centre. New opening hours will also be in operation from the opening, allowing the centre to meet customer expectations and allow for additional weekend access to the gym and pool.
 
Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Martin Kearney has welcomed the reopening of the Centre, saying, “We are delighted that Dungannon Leisure Centre is reopening after its extended closure for essential structural and refurbishment work. We know that the Dungannon public have been waiting very patiently for the reopening, and we hope that in revitalising the Centre, users have the opportunity for not only an improved experience but gain motivation to become more active, more often in the new surroundings.”
 
The Centre is throwing its doors open from Friday, with a weekend of activities to celebrate, with customers being offered free access to the pool and gym, and free fitness class taster sessions happening on Saturday, and family fun on Sunday.
