oswald park (oswestry leisure centre)

Client: Oswestry Borough Council

As part of a Leisure Facilities development Plan undertaken in 1998 for the Borough of Oswestry, Saville Jones was commissioned to study the whole of the borough’s recreation and arts facilities, including outdoor spaces.

A hierarchy of facilities from outdoor play areas, community halls and through to the replacement of the existing leisure centre were identified. The need for greater open space, confirmed by a subsequent PPG17 study and the need for new leisure facilities was developed into an exciting new public park.

The design incorporates the following facilities:

  • 25m swimming pool
  • sports hall
  • squash courts
  • health and fitness
  • dance studio
  • community police office
  • education/training rooms
  • cafe
  • administration
  • athletics track
  • synthetic turf pitch
  • external grass pitches

The building has been designed to incorporate sustainable design principles including good levels of natural light, chp, natural ventilation where possible and high levels of thermal insulation.
