Construction is underway on a new waterpark and leisure centre in the heart of Coventry City Centre.
In September 2018 the name of the new waterpark and leisure centre was unveiled.
The £36.7 million water park currently being built on the former Spire House site in the city centre will be called The Wave.
The name has been selected because its short, memorable, descriptive and it has been taken from the design of the building. The logo features a spiral letter ‘W’ that brings a flavour of a twisting flume ending in a splash of water making it an innovative and modern design.
Alongside The Wave with its thrill rides and slides the building will also include a day spa, 25 metre x 4 lane swimming pool, 120 station fitness suite, squash courts and dance studio.
The new building has been designed by international architects FaulknerBrowns. The circular building will be dramatically lit at night.
The waterpark is set to open in 2019.
The Council is also working on a new 50m pool at the Alan Higgs Centre.
