Today (Monday 18 December 2023), Olympia, Dundee's biggest leisure and swimming centre, opened to the public after a period refurbishment works.
Entries at peak times for the venue are already fully booked until the end of December 2023.
Judy Dobbie, Director of Leisure & Culture Dundee said,
"This is the day we have all been looking forward to. It's fantastic to see families, swimmers, and gym goers enjoying the Olympia facilities again. It's also great news for our communities and tourism in the city."
"The high demand for bookings over the opening period shows just how much everyone looks forward to visiting Olympia."
"Olympia is home to one the best leisure pools in the country and we can't wait to welcome everyone."
Euan Lowe, Chief Executive of Scottish Swimming said
“It is great to see the Olympia pool in Dundee open its doors once again for all to enjoy this fantastic facility. Swimming is a sport for all and a sport for life. From birth through to old age everyone can enjoy water whether it is to keep healthy, for fun as a family, or for personal fitness."
“According to an opinion poll earlier in 2023, 86% of the Scottish population think swimming pools are important for health and the health benefits of swimming are well documented with positive effects on some of our most prevalent diseases like diabetes, dementia and depression. Swimming generally makes people of all ages and abilities feel good and most of all it is great fun!”
