When it opens in early 2010, the scheme will comprise new sport, cultural and community facilities.

The project developed by Ealing Council will feature enhanced swimming facilities including a 25m eight-lane swimming pool and teaching pool, fitness suite, library, community centre, café and exhibition space, plus, a Metropolitan Police ‘safer neighbourhoods’ ward base.

Built on the site of the recently demolished Northolt Swimarama, an old swimming pool and small fitness suite, the centre is deigned to appeal to audiences across the borough and is part of a wider investment programme by Ealing Council in sports, community and cultural facilities.
