8. Riverside Pool and Leisure Centre

Update on Riverside Leisure Centre

A lot of work has been taking place since the fire occurred to make safe and demolish dangerous structures, clean up and decontaminate the premises, as well as to facilitate a full structural assessment of the damage to the premises and especially to the roof.

That assessment is being carried out now with the outcome critical to determining what repair work will be necessary, and how long it is likely to take.

Fortunately, most of the facilities have been able to reopen, excluding the pools and spa facilities.

The safety of the premises remains our primary concern. Until we receive a full assessment of the damage we are unable to give a precise timescale on how long the pool will be closed.

But we are committed to ensuring that it is reopened as soon as possible, as soon as it is safe to do so.


Located near Exe Bridge, Riverside Leisure Centre offers an impressive 100 station gym, 25m swimming pool, sports hall, 2 squash courts, and a friendly onsite café.
