The public swimming pool at Abercynon Leisure Centre has re-opened after substantial Council investment funded through its on-going #RCTinvest programme. 

A total of £450,000 has been spent on improvements at Abercynon Leisure Centre over the past few months - including the complete refurbishment of the swimming pool area. 

Works include the relining of the main pool and refurbishment of the pool tank, along with an upgrade of the pool hall ventilation system and improved ceiling and lighting.

The works also includes a full refurbishment of both Male and Female pool changing rooms – including showers, toilets, lockers, benches and new changing cubicles and refurbished facilities for customers with disabilities. 

This forms part of the Council’s continued commitment to create modern, attractive Leisure Centres throughout the County Borough that encourages residents to enjoy a healthier lifestyle through its Leisure for Life initiative. 

Councillor Ann Crimmings, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Leisure and Heritage Services, said: “The completion of the major refurbishment at Abercynon Leisure Centre is fantastic news for all users.

“The newly-relined public pool is a key facility at the centre, adding to all the other classes and facilities that are on offer for existing users and new users as part of the Council’s successful Leisure for Life initiative.

“Meanwhile, the improvement of the changing rooms will ensure that this popular facility provides users with a positive experience from the moment they walk through the door.

“Following user feedback, the Council also took the decision to invest in improving changing room facilities at our leisure centres, and the completion of the works means that Abercynon Leisure Centre is the latest indoor centre to benefit, after Bronwydd Pool and Rhondda Sports Centre.

“The Michael Sobell Centre in Aberdare will be the next leisure centre to benefit from the changing room improvement programme and the Council will communicate further details in due course.

“This Council’s on-going investment in our indoor and outdoor leisure facilities highlights our continued commitment to create modern leisure facilities suitable for all ages across our County Borough.”
