Blackbird Leys Leisure Centre has undergone a transformation and has been renamed Leys Pools and Leisure Centre.
A new swimming complex has been built alongside the existing building and is due to open fully in January 2015.
We're a much-loved local landmark, that has been providing summer fun and great memories since we opened back in 1934 (open May-September).
Temple Cowley Pools has closed and will not reopen. All operations have been transferred to the new Leys Pools and Leisure Centre.
Blackbird Leys Pool has closed and will not reopen. All operations have been transferred to the new Leys Pools and Leisure Centre.

The telephone number for all our leisure centres is 0844 8933 222. Calls cost approximately 3p a minute, plus an 8p connection charge, from a BT landline, or much more from a mobile. If you have inclusive calls, or mobile inclusive minutes, to 01 02 and 03 numbers, it is cheaper to use the individual centre's 01865 number, which you can find on our web pages for each individual leisure centre.
We work with Fusion Lifestyle (a not-for-profit leisure trust) to improve and develop our leisure centres and swimming pools.
We have signed a 10-year management contract with Fusion which will deliver improvements to the centres and reduce the overall cost of the service resulting in better value for money for the people of Oxford.
