Harpenden Leisure and Cultural Development

Printer-friendly page

The ambition is to extend and transform the swimming pool site into one modern integrated leisure centre for a variety of sports and activities. It is envisaged this will contain:

  • The swimming pool 
  • A new larger learner pool 
  • A new gym with significantly more machine stations
  • A new sports hall
  • A new café 

The existing sports centre could then become a new arts and cultural centre integrating a museum display area dedicated to Harpenden’s historic past. It will have a larger theatre than the Halls, more function rooms and an extensive bar and refreshments area.
