Penarth Leisure Centre is undergoing extensive refurbishments, including a roof refurbishment, as part of the Vale of Glamorgan Council's investment programme.

During the first phase of refurbishment, the pool area will be temporarily closed. However, members can still access the recently refurbished gym, free weights area, and full fitness classes programme.

The centre received a £250,000 investment last year, which enabled the addition new cardio and strength training equipment, a full centre refurbishment, and the addition of a free weights area.

A dedicated spin studio was incorporated into the centre, complete with cutting-edge lighting and sound systems. Equipped with refurbished spin bikes, Penarth Leisure Centre can now host dynamic spin classes, catering to the diverse well-being needs of the community.

"It is truly heartening to witness the residents' support in helping us uphold our commitment to keep this centre open and accessible for the local community.

“This investment ensures that individuals can continue to enjoy high-quality health and wellbeing facilities in their own local areas."

While the pool is closed, members can get free access to Cardiff International Pool where they can enjoy lane swimming and classes while the Penarth Pool is closed.

These improvements are intended to ensure that the building remains functional for future generations. The works have been planned with the goal of minimising disruption to the daily activities of the leisure centre

Cllr Gwyn John, cabinet member for leisure, sport, and wellbeing, said: "Our investment programme is delivering refurbished and well-equipped leisure centres for the Vale that make health and fitness accessible to everyone.

“Our teams have worked closely with our partners at Parkwood throughout to ensure disruption is kept to an absolute minimum."
