North City Family and Fitness Centre

Situated just off Rochdale Road and next to the North City Shopping Centre and Market, is the North City Family and Fitness centre. A unique and valuable service to families, the centre houses a full leisure hub alongside a Sure Start Children’s Centre, providing support and activities for preschoolers and their grown-ups.

The centre also has a soft play area for under 8s

Practice your swimming technique in the 25 metre pool or take a cardio workout in the well-equipped gym. Many of the exercise machines comply with the Inclusive Fitness Initiative too, which means that they are designed specifically for people with a disability.

Fully accessible and welcoming to all, the centre offers free swimming for under 17s during school holidays and weekends, and all year round to those over 60.

Teamed with the Sure Start Children’s Centre, which offers support and advice for young families, North City Family and Fitness Centre is a one-stop shop for family health and wellbeing.
