A brand new soft play centre, ‘Little Treasures’, opened to the public at Clifton Leisure Centre on Monday 11 January.

The soft play area has a ‘under the sea’ theme and is suitable for children aged 6 months to 10 years old, and accommodates a maximum of 26 children.  Prices start from £2.50 per session (for Citycard holders).

A refurbished kitchen area now acts as a multi-activity room and is available for party hire bookings.

Customers can enjoy public play sessions throughout the day, as well as being able to hire the soft play facility for children’s parties, along with an additional party room.

Clifton Leisure Centre manager Kirsty Worthington said: “Little Treasures is a great addition to the centre’s facilities. We are very excited about our recent developments here at Clifton Leisure Centre, and the high standard of the new facilities including a refurbished fitness studio and a new group cycling studio. We are sure our customers will enjoy the improved facilities.”

To mark the completion of the project and to thank customers for their patience while the works have been carried out, Clifton Leisure Centre is inviting everyone to a special family open day with an official opening of ‘Little Treasures’ on Saturday 6 February between 10am and 2pm. There will be activities on during the day including fitness classes and arts and crafts for children.

Cllr Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture says: “This is an exciting development for Clifton Leisure Centre. We continue to invest in our leisure centres so that we can provide high quality new facilities like these for customers to enjoy.  The new soft play centre is a great place to entertain kids in a fun, safe environment.”

Andy Sewards, director for G F Tomlinson which has worked on the development of the Leisure Centre, also commented: “Delivering schemes that will improve the lives of local people is at the heart of what we do. The Clifton Leisure Centre is a well-loved facility that has been enhanced through the creation of the Little Treasures area, the additional improvements to existing fitness areas for adults means people of all ages will benefit from our work. We were delighted to work alongside Nottingham City Council again, following the success of the Spend to Grow Scheme, to complete this programme and help improve leisure services in the city.”
