A 25m, eight lane pool and spectator seating for 200 people is one of the main features of the centre. In addition there is a smaller 12m X 10m training pool which was designed with a moveable floor.
Another striking feature 14m climbing wall, 4m bouldering wall and a traverse wall with over 70 climbing routes and a high level abseil platform.
There are also 2 studios which include facilities such as rubberised floor surface with in laid marking, and a sprung wooden floor and. They are separated by a sliding acoustic wall, but with this wall removed a terrific multipurpose performance, exhibition and conference space is created.
Further features include a steam room, sauna and aromatherapy room. The Aqua Sauna is accompanied by a monsoon shower, ice feature, foot spas, padded loungers and a juice bar and a well-lit 150m2 area for contemporary exhibitions and gallery space housing.
