Leisure Pool Refurbishment Project
Major improvement works to begin in June.
The Triangle Leisure Pool Set for £600,000 refurbishment
Between 04 June and 20 July this year major improvement work, jointly funded by Mid Sussex District Council (MSDC) and Places for People Leisure (PfPL), will take place in the Leisure pool.
PfPL’s Contract Manager Tom Carter said “The improvements reflect what our customers have been telling us they want to see at the centre. The leisure pool has always been a popular activity and we are excited to be able to deliver these works to show our ongoing commitment in providing great local leisure facilities for Mid Sussex.”
What will the refurbishment works include?
The improvement works will include the full refurbishment of the flumes along with renovation works to the flume tower and steelwork. The slides will be repainted and resealed and a new traffic light system will be installed to help improve safety further. The works will also include the removal of the falling rapids slide to create space for a new slide which will be introduced later in the year. The beach area will also be transformed, replacing the pirate ship with some exciting new interactive water play features for children of all ages.
Further details to be released soon.
Will this affect the access to swimming?
During this period of work the leisure pool and lido will remain closed to the public. However, the works are taking place at this time to ensure the improved Leisure Pool is open for use during the busy Summer months. Tom continued “We would like to apologise for the inconvenience the closure will cause. There is obviously no ideal time to undertake such extensive improvement works but we believe District residents will be very pleased with the final results”.
To keep disruption to a minimum the fitness pool is expected to operate as normal during the works, as long as safe to do so. During these works alternative pools are available at The Dophin Leisure Centre and the Kings Centre.
Gary Marsh, Cabinet Member for Service Delivery at MSDC added “We are proud to continue to invest in our three Leisure Centres and this refurbishment work at the Triangle will ensure the Leisure Pool there is upgraded and can continue to be enjoyed by the residents of Mid Sussex for years to come”
We aim to keep disruption to a minimum for our members during this time, the fitness pool will operate as normal during these works, as long as it is safe to do so. Alternative pool facilties are available to members at The Dolphin, Kings Centre and The Pavilions in the Park during this time. If members have any queries about this project and their access they can contact Member Services 01444 876010.
Swim Lesson Partipants
The fitness pool is not expected to close for any significant period during this time so we expect minimum disruption to swim lessons.
With regards to lessons held in our leisure pool, which include parent and baby and pre-school lessons we are currently working with our teachers to relocate as many lessons as possible. The swim coordinator will be in touch with any swim lesson participants affected by the the closure by Friday 13th April.
