Jubilee Swimming Pool, in Knowle, reopens after makeover.
Following a £300,000 council investment and makeover - the facility boasts a new Expressions Gym featuring a 15-station gym suite with a mix of cardiovascular and body toning equipment.
Roof repairs, extensive maintenance works, a new reception area, improved changing facilities, refurbished pool, up-graded showers and lighting, carpeted seating areas and fresh internal and external painting and redecorating throughout are all part of the makeover.
Parkwood Community Leisure – managers of Hengrove Park Leisure Centre, the city's flagship sports facility – will also manage and operate the newly refurbished Jubilee swimming pool and Expressions Gym.
A busy programme of open, public swim sessions, lane swimming, swimming for the over 50s, moonlight swims and swimming lessons for young learners is already in place.
Members of the public are invited to a sneak-preview weekend on September 29 and 30 before the new-look pool officially reopens. Free swim taster sessions, children's swims, fun activities and membership opportunities will be on offer.
On Saturday, adults can enjoy a free swim from 8am to 10am and then, up until 4pm children can join in a host of free swim activities. On Sunday, adults can swim for free from 8am to 11am, with children's float and fun events running through to 2pm. This will be followed by an open lane swimming session until 3pm.
The refurbished facility fully opens its doors at 7am on Monday, October 1.
