Winchester Sport & Leisure Park opens to the public

Winchester City Council’s new Sport and Leisure Park has opened to the public. Built throughout the pandemic, the new facility replaces the River Park Leisure Centre, which is more than 40 years old.

Willmott Dixon was contractor for the new centre, which includes a 50m eight-lane swimming pool, 20m teaching pool including a water confidence area, multi-use sports hall with acoustic screening and a Top Rock climbing facility. 

It also features four glass-backed squash courts with a movable wall to enable flexible use, treatment rooms, a gym, two large studios, one spin studio and a café. The new Pinder Hydrotherapy Centre will provide a range of aquatic physiotherapy services.

The centre is operated by Everyone Active.
