Project Facts

Newton Stewart

Merrick Leisure Centre

This project, which is part of the Douglas Ewart High School, was won as a limited competition organised by Dumfries and Galloway Council, and work was undertaken in two phases related to available funding.  SportScotland awarded a maximum lottery grant to enable phase 2 to progress to completion.

The new facility provides new pool changing rooms; upgrades to the existing pool and games hall; new dry changing facilities for indoor and outdoor sports; a new fitness suite; and café overlooking the pool area.

The existing fabric of the pool and games hall was upgraded to improve thermal performance and durability.

The facility provides a combined community and education facility.
