With 15,500 tiles used for the main pool, 3,900 on the learner pool and the poolside walls and surrounds comprising of 11,100 the completion of the estimated 30,000 tiles marks a significant stage in the state of the art swimming and leisure facility’s completion.
The new centre which will include a 25 metre six lane swimming pool, teaching pool, sports hall, 100 station fitness suite, dance studio and cafe is on target for its completion of early Summer following a yearlong building programme.
Oak Park and Bloxwich Active Living Centres form part of a multi million pound scheme being built by ISG working with Walsall Council.
Funded through the Council’s £24.3 million Active Living Centres initiative, the project received a £2m grant from Sport England’s “Iconic” facilities award scheme to support Walsall Council’s aspiration to improve Walsall residents’ overall health and well-being.
Councillor Harris Portfolio Holder for Community, Communities, Leisure and Culture stated: “This is proving to be a very exciting time in the development of these two state of the art sports centres.
“It has been a huge effort by everyone involved to get to this stage and it’s a significant achievement. When completed these centres will offer the types of facilities that the people of Walsall deserve and I’m very proud to have been involved.”
