Based in the picturesque Aireville Park, we have the largest pool in Craven, and a teaching pool with a moveable floor and access lifts. Whether you are an occasional visitor or a member, we have lots to offer.
New Year, New Name! We are changing the name of our swimming pool and fitness centre to... Craven Leisure
This is in recognition of our broad and varied range of services. We are now much more than just a pool and fitness centre. Our new name, Craven Leisure, will enable us to continue to add to our services going forward and provide an all-encompassing leisure facility for the people of Craven.
Over the course of the next few months you will see us using this name more and more and it will be strongly represented in our promotional material. We will use a vibrant range of colours to communicate the different activities that we offer; purple for the gym, pink for classes, blue for swimming, green for our outdoor facilities and orange when we are talking more generally about our services.
Our facilities include two swimming pools, a 68 station fitness suite (gym), a health suite (sauna & steam), dance studio, 14 hole pitch and putt course and a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA).
