Workington Leisure Centre

Size and date of award

£11.3 million

Allerdale Borough Council prioritised the development of a new and improved leisure centre for Workington, to replace the existing centre at Moorclose that was inefficient and costly to operate.

The new centre is an innovative sports centre and a tourist attraction for the north of Cumbria.

A number of flood risk mitigation measures are also included due to the site’s proximity to a stream and the nearby River Derwent.

The leisure centre includes swimming pools, a sports hall, a large health and fitness gym, artificial football pitches, a children’s play area and more.
