Our sport and leisure centres are starting to reopen from 14 September. Get the latest information on our FAQs page.

New Parks Leisure Centre

New Parks Leisure Centre offers activities in our swimming pools and squash courts. Find us on St Oswalds Road, Leicester, LE3 6RJ.

New Parks Leisure Centre remains closed

While some of our centres will open on Monday 14 September, New Parks Leisure Centre remains closed until further notice, as part of a phased reopening plan. However, we are still working hard towards getting the centre ready for when we do reopen.

As an Active Leicester member, you can still get access to any of our other leisure centres in the city. Find another centre.

COVID-19 information

When New Parks Leisure centre does reopen, we will need to put in place measures to ensure the centre remains safe and enjoyable for everyone.

Of course, in order to maintain the safety of our customers and staff, we need to undertake certain measures, meaning that your experience at our centres might be a little bit different. Here are some of the things we are introducing to keep you safe:

  • Booking and payment in advance are essential
  • Screens at reception desks and helpful information signage throughout our centres
  • Changes in how we deliver activities to provide additional space for social distancing
  • Increased cleaning and hygiene measures across leisure centres

Please book any sessions or classes in advance, to avoid disappointment. In order to book, you will need to be an Active Leicester member. We also advise that members pay in advance to save any unnecessary contact on arrival. When you come to our centres, please arrive in appropriate clothing (‘beach-ready’ if you are coming to swim) as our changing rooms may be unavailable.
