Planned essential pool maintenance and improvements are scheduled to begin at Littledown Centre, Bournemouth later this year.

The programme includes essential repairs, tiling and steelwork replacement in the pool area.

To coincide with this, enhancements in the swimming pool changing rooms will also be carried out. New showers, cubicles and toilets, replacement flooring, energy efficient lighting, ventilation and drainage improvement works will improve the overall ambience and customer experience. In the spa, an aroma room will be transformed into a steam room.

The work is being carried out by Bournemouth Borough Council in partnership with venue operator BH Live.

“Littledown has some of the finest community sport and swimming facilities in the country, says Councillor Pat Oakley, cabinet member for Tourism, Leisure and the Arts.

“These essential works and improvements will make sure the facilities continue to meet people’s needs and preserve the lifespan of the pool.”

The pool, spa and all wet changing rooms will be closed between Monday 19 November-Friday 21 December 2018 while the works are carried out.

Customers are being advised of the planned works and closures.

Other swimming pools, activities and classes are available at Stokewood, Pelhams, Queen’s Park and Corfe Mullen. Visit for details.

Mike Lyons, BH Live’s Director for Sport and Leisure adds, “We look forward to seeing the improved facilities and thank our customers for bearing with us throughout the works.”

 For further information about alternative facilities and activities, customers are advised to speak with a member of staff in centre or call customer services on 01202 055550.
