Erewash leisure centre opens after £2.3m revamp

A Derbyshire leisure centre has reopened after a 10-month £2.3m revamp.

The pool at Victoria Park Leisure Centre in Ilkeston opened on Saturday along with new upgraded changing rooms.

Some of the centre, which is run by Erewash Borough Council, remained open while the work took place, but the main swimming pool was closed.

The project also included the addition of a sauna and steam room and upgraded disabled swimming facilities.

Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council's lead member for culture and leisure, said: "This has been an exciting project and, indeed, a major investment that has updated, modernised and given a whole new look to Victoria Park Leisure Centre.

"We are very proud of the refurbishment and the facilities on offer and I know residents will share our delight that the centre is now fully open for business."
