Play Drome Leisure Centre


(The Playdrome)

A dramatic modern construction located on Abbotsford Road in Clydebank, next to the Clyde Shopping Centre, the Play Drome Leisure Centre (sometimes the Playdrome) was built 1991-94. It follows a nautical theme, with the roof suspended from giant masts and the vast interior space not dissimilar to that of a grand ocean liner, with light descending from a vast cupola.

Claiming to have some of the best swimming facilities in the West of Scotland, the centre includes a 25-m (27-yard) swimming pool, a separate teaching pool and a leisure pool, complete with wave machine, water slides, river rapids, water canons, tyre ride and a beach area. It also offers sports halls with facilities for badminton and indoor bowls, squash courts, exercise classes, and a health and fitness club.

The double sports hall features retractable seating for 450 and can also offer an exhibition venue with more than 1000 sq. m (10,800 sq. feet) of floor-space.
