Oldham Council has revealed the designs for the new £15m leisure facility planned for the town centre.
The replacement Oldham Sports Centre at the junction of Manchester Street and St Domingo Street is due to open in 2015 and will be built by Willmott Dixon, designed by GT Architects.
A planning application is due to be submitted in February. The centre, designed to be capable of hosting televised sports competitions, will include a 25-metre eight-lane swimming pool, eight-court sports hall, exercise studios and indoor bowls hall.
The current Oldham Sports Centre will not close until the new facility is completed in autumn 2015.
Cllr Jim McMahon, Oldham Council leader, said the project was designed with input from the Olympic legacy committee.
Draft designs for the new facility were submitted to an independent Places Matter Design Review Panel who made a series of recommendations. Their suggestions have been reflected in the final designs.
Public displays of the proposals will be on show at the Civic Centre and Oldham Sports Centre's main reception from today Wednesday 29 January until the end of February.
Last week, the council revealed architect's images of the proposed £8m new Royton leisure facility, also by Willmott Dixon and GT Architects.
