The ambition is to extend and transform the Harpenden swimming pool site into one modern integrated leisure centre for a variety of sports and activities.  It is envisaged this will contain:

- The swimming pool 
- A new larger learner pool 
- A new gym with significantly more machine stations
- A new sports hall
- A new café 

The existing sports centre could then become a new arts and cultural centre integrating a museum display area dedicated to Harpenden’s historic past. It will have a larger theatre than the Halls, additional function rooms, and an extensive bar and refreshments area.

Update March 2018
