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 waterpark is a new health and fitness centre. Lifestyles at The Wave offers a state of the art fitness suite, 25m pool and an incredible range of group exercises classes. The Council is also working on a new 50m pool at the Alan Higgs Centre.
The Wave opens on 21 October. You can find out more, book a session and see the slides at the Wave website.
