Not fit for purpose – old fitness centre comes down

Work is due to begin today (Monday 15 April) to demolish the old Westbridge Park Fitness Centre in Stone.

The outdated facility is adjacent to the new multi-million pound Stone Leisure Centre which opened its doors to the public at the start of the month housing a 25 metre, six lane swimming pool, state of the art gym, cycling ‘spin’ room and two fitness studios.

The former Westbridge Park Fitness Centre will make way for the building of a 75 space car park to serve the new leisure centre.

The demolition work is expected to take around six weeks complete with a date for the new car park to be opened earmarked for late June.
