Plans unveiled for Coventry's £36.7m waterpark
POSTED 30 Mar 2016 . BY Tom Anstey
Coventry Council has unveiled the first images of the city’s new £36.7m (US$51.8m, €46.4m) waterpark, which will replace the existing Grade II-listed 1966 central swimming pool when it opens in 2019.

The new building, which will house a waterpark, 25-metre swimming pool, gym, climbing wall, squash courts, dance studio and day spa, has been designed by architects Faulkner Browns.

The circular building’s ribbon-like exterior, designed to reflect the city’s weaving past will be dramatically lit at night and is located in a central location on the site of Spire and Christchurch House.

Water Technology Inc (WTI) is handling the waterpark’s design, which will include a wave pool, lazy river, children’s splash pad, children’s play structure and six water slides.

A planning application for the building is expected to be submitted to Coventry City Council in May, with an estimated 1.3 million people a year visiting the new attraction. The development is part of an initiative to make Coventry a ‘top 10 city’ in Britain again, revamping the town centre with offerings outside of retail.
