New details of Hull’s next major leisure revamp have been revealed by Hull City Council.

Albert Avenue Pools is the next centre in line for a full refurbishment, with a £4.6m transformation that will also see the construction of a new outdoor lido to replace the existing one which closed 25 years ago.

The remodel will include the construction of a large gymnasium and fitness studio, the renovation and redecoration of the whole building, replacement of all mechanical and electrical systems, along with new heating and ventilation systems.

Councillor Daren Hale, portfolio holder for economic investment and regeneration, said: “These impressive CGIs unveil the bold and exciting plans for the Albert Avenue lido.

“Work will start on site as soon as the Beverley Road Baths refurbishment is completed. This demonstrates the council’s commitment to the ongoing programme.”

Cllr Dave Craker, portfolio holder for leisure and culture, said: “Albert Avenue Pools will follow in the footsteps of Ennerdale Leisure Centre, completed early in 2020, and Beverley Road Baths which is currently undergoing a full refurbishment, in providing the best possible facilities for our residents.

“Work has already started to demolish the old mortuary building currently on the site, however the centre will not close to the public until Beverley Road Baths reopens in order to maintain a centre for residents in that area of the city.

“The council is incredibly passionate about investing into our communities and I already know the centre will be really appreciated and loved by its users for years to come.”

Albert Avenue Pools will close to begin the major works when Beverley Road Baths reopens to the public later this year.
