Emily Calder takes a look around Milton Keynes’ top health club after a revamp of its indoor pool, showers and car park
Milton Keynes’ premium health and fitness club has just got even better thanks to a new refurbishment.
David Lloyd Club in Newlands has splashed out £550,000 on a revamp of its facilities including the indoor pool, showers and car park during a six-week refurbishment.
The club previously underwent a notable £1.4million renovation in 2015 and, now with its most recent update, is completely updated from when its doors first opened 21 years ago.
The final instalment can be seen as soon as members arrive. The car park now boasts an additional 67 spaces, bringing the grand total to 400, with the addition of two electric car charging points.
David Barker, General Manager, said: “We’re one of the biggest David Lloyd Clubs in terms of membership so the car park does tend to fill up. “The refurbishment should make it easy for everyone to find a space that suits them.”
Following a swim, a class, or use of the club’s gym and tennis facilities, members can now enjoy the totally refurbished showers. The new glass cubicles are bright, modern and clean.
In keeping with the stylish grey tones of the new pool area, the 12 new showers in each changing room are equipped to cool off members after they have worked up a sweat.
The indoor pool area is the big highlight of the refurbishment as the 25-metre pool has been completely revitalised to state-of-the-art standards.
The pool now feels far more sophisticated as the area has been decked with brand new tiles up to the pool’s edge, with repainted ceilings and columns.
Following the renovation, which includes a complete grouting of the pool itself, David commented: “The pool is perfect now, and the swimmers are really pleased.
“With a brand new space, from the pool itself to the lights and speakers, there has never been a better time or place for Milton Keynes swimmers to take to the water.”
