Prestwick Swimming Pool Reopens with Brand New Gym and Changing Rooms
Prestwick Swimming Pool reopened on Monday 12 September 2022, following a £300k investment by South Ayrshire Council to expand the gym and refurbish the changing rooms and toilets.
The facility closed to the public on 23 April 2022 to allow the renovation to take place, and staff were relocated to the Citadel Leisure Centre in Ayr for the duration of the works.
The impressive expansion has seen the gym double in size, with state-of-the-art equipment installed. We worked alongside experts at Life Fitness to design a space suited to gym members of all abilities and fitness levels. A range of on demand classes will also be available in the new gym.
Other improvements include the installation of new cubicles and lockers in the changing rooms and new toilet facilities, including an additional accessible toilet. Access control has been implemented, allowing gym members to swipe in with their membership card, or through our SAC Leisure App. New decoration has also been added in the foyer area to update the look of the facility.
Leader of South Ayrshire Council, Councillor Martin Dowey, Councillor Martin Kilbride, Councillor Hugh Hunter and Councillor Cameron Ramsay visited on Tuesday 6 September to take a look at the fantastic improvements.
Councillor Brian Connolly, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Sport and Leisure said: "I'm delighted to see that works are now finished at Prestwick Swimming Pool. The facility is a firm favourite amongst locals and I'm sure that members will be excited to return to their regular club and see these great changes for themselves.
"It's important to encourage people of all ages in South Ayrshire to stay fit and healthy, and I'm sure the updated gym will attract new members as well as returning ones."
