Dunstable Leisure Centre


Dunstable Leisure Centre’s swimming pool is temporarily closed

The Leisure Centre’s swimming pool has been temporarily closed, following some roof damage and leakage to that area of the centre. All other activities at the Centre are unaffected.

Notices are up at the Leisure Centre and in the carpark to advise customers of the temporary closure and specialist engineers will be visiting as soon as possible to review the damage and establish how and when this can be fixed.

Swimming is still available at Lifestyles@Tiddenfoot and Harpenden Pool. For customers that have queries on swimming lessons or swimming memberships specifically, please contact the Centre directly on 01582 608107 to speak to a member of our team.

Thank you for your understanding in the meantime and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. We will update you as soon as we have more information.

Swimming is a great way to improve fitness, tone up and burn calories. Its low-impact too so there’s less risk of injury and it’s a great addition to other training programmes.

Pool Safety for Children

You must decide what level of supervision each child needs from you in the light of his/her swimming ability and the water depth and features of our swimming pool.
As a minimum, each child under 8 must be directly supervised in the water by its parent, or an adult (aged 18 or over). This is recommended by the Health & Safety Executive.
No more than 2 children under 8 may be supervised by one parent or adult (aged 18 or over).

Pool Water Hygiene

Please help us to keep the pool water clean and clear for your bathing enjoyment. Before entering the pool:

  • Use the toilet
  • Have a shower
  • Blow your nose
  • Ensure that your swimwear is clean
  • Ensure that babies/ small children wear swim nappies if required

If you have had diarrhoea, you MUST NOT swim until you have been symptom free for at least 48 hours.
