Northfield Swimming Pool Upgrade  

The newly upgraded and extended Northfield Swimming Pool will include a 60-station gym, a multipurpose studio, group and family changing, new flooring and retiling, the replacement of fixture and fittings and new suspended ceilings, as well as additional car and cycle parking. The pool is expected to reopen in autumn 2021.

A planning application was submitted to the local planning authority for the Northfield Swimming Pool refurbishment and extension on Friday 20th March 2020.

You can see information about this application on the Aberdeen City Council planning portal:

This is just one stage of a bigger project to deliver the new Northfield Pool, which we know the local community has been waiting a long time for. Sport Aberdeen is working on behalf of Aberdeen City Council, and our development partner is Alliance Leisure Services. We are all working together to deliver the new pool for you.

You might be wondering if the Coronavirus pandemic will affect the refurbishment of the pool. We hope that it won’t. The work which needs to be done before we reach the construction phase will keep going, and we still hope to start work onsite in early autumn 2020. We will do all that we can to keep the momentum going over the coming weeks and months.
