Falkirk Community Trust and Falkirk Council are proud to announce that a bigger and better Mariner Centre is on the way for visitors and locals in Falkirk this year.
Construction work is well underway to develop enhanced facilities in the centre as well as a brand new soft play area called `The Great Mariner Reef`. But rest assured that the Swimming Pool and Health & Fitness area remain open during the work.
Visitors can expect a large, state of the art soft play area suitable for children up to 12 years within the Great Mariner Reef with impressive views through to the swimming pool. Other planned improvements to the building include a brand new reception area, café, seating area and `Changing Places` - which is a fully accessible changing area with hoist and changing bench.
The project is creating multiple new jobs within the centre and also aims to attract more visitors to the local area.
Neil Brown, General Manager at Falkirk Community Trust said: “We are developing some really fantastic changes at The Mariner Centre to increase footfall and deliver an enhanced experience for our visitors. Current on-going plans for `The Great Mariner Reef` are really exciting and we look forward to unveiling them to the public soon.
“We are also very proud, alongside the Adult Social Care Services team at Falkirk Council, to be able to offer a new `changing places` facility, that opens 13th June . With thousands of people with profound disabilities unable to use standard accessible toilets, our new fully accessible toilets will mean everyone can enjoy The Mariner Centre."
Councillor Cecil Meiklejohn, Leader of Falkirk Council said: “The new facilities will really benefit The Mariner Centre and will encourage many new users to enjoy both the new soft play and offer much improved changing areas to those with disabilities."
