Attraction Information

Escape the hustle and bustle and rejuvenate at Chingford Leisure Centre, where relaxation and fitness combine seamlessly. While your children enjoy their swimming lessons, dive into a yoga class or embark on a personal training session. This community-focused center nestled within Larkswood Leisure Park offers a myriad of activities, ensuring there's something for everyone, from fitness enthusiasts to social butterflies and families seeking fun and learning.

Dive into Fitness and Fun:

Prepare for a refreshing dip in the 25m, 6-lane swimming pool, perfect for channeling your inner mermaid or merman. Swimming not only builds endurance but also enhances muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness. It's a full-body workout that appeals to all age groups!

Toddlers can develop their swimming skills in the shallow teaching pool, with Better Swim School lessons catering to various ages and abilities. This 12.5m x 10m pool (0m - 0.9m depth) offers a safe space for young water enthusiasts to learn and play.

Thanks to the Waltham Forest Council-funded initiative, young residents (under 18) can enjoy free swimming during school holidays (junior membership required). This offering extends to Waltham Forest residents aged 60+, Armed Forces personnel, and People with Disabilities during off-peak hours on weekdays (9am-4pm) and after 1pm on weekends (membership required).

Expert Guidance and Support:

Feel lost in the world of fitness? Consider booking a personal training session to kickstart your wellness journey. Alternatively, the center's friendly staff members are always on hand to assist, whether you need guidance on proper form or general insights about gym equipment.

Stay Energized:

While the centre doesn't offer onsite food options, ensure you're energised by refueling before your session. Plan a pre-workout meal to sustain your stamina throughout your fitness goals.

Accessibility at Its Best:

Chingford Leisure Centre prioritises accessibility, offering facilities tailored for wheelchair users, including adapted toilets and accessible parking spaces. A poolside hoist, ramps, accessible changing rooms, and a lift further enhance the center's inclusivity. Enjoy the poolside facilities with ease, knowing that every area is designed with your comfort in mind.
