The extension of Woodford Leisure Centre on Holderness Road was given approval by Hull City Council Cabinet in February 2015 as part of the Visitor Destination Phase 1: 2017 Priority Programme. Works are underway to progress the new six-lane twenty five metre pool and ten metre beginners pool as well as improved changing facilities, following demolition of the existing entrance area.
Additional plans also include new sauna and steam facilities, a café located on the ground floor at the new entrance. The installation of new environmental technologies will also look to reduce longer term operating costs.
The car parking area will be relocated and provide additional spaces. During this closure alternative leisure and swimming facilities can be found at East Hull Baths, Beverley Road Baths and Ennerdale Leisure centre.
