Ochil Leisure Centre was officially opened last Friday.
The newly refurbished centre was opened by Lucinda Kerr, the secretary of new owners Ochil Leisure Enterprises,
The former Alva Pool and its associated car park was transferred from the council to Ochil Leisure Enterprises (OLE) for a sum of £1, along with £100,000 to cover demolition costs.
The community facility is aimed at serving the people of Alva and Clackmannanshire.
The centre was also given £250,000 in funding from the council to help get the project started.
Provost Tina Murphy and Council Leader, Councillor Gary Womersley were among the invited guests at the official opening.
Councillor Womersley,made a short speech at the opening. He said: “Swimming is a priority sport for the Council which is why the Council has made such a significant financial commitment to OLE.
“OLE is a key partner in helping the Council to deliver our Leisure Strategy, meeting our targets of increased levels of participation in swimming, investing in the future health and wellbeing of our communities.
“This is the dawn of a new and exciting chapter for the pool and the people who use it every day.
“The new-look leisure centre will be a vibrant and important focal point for the Hillfoots and the whole of Clackmannanshire and I am sure it will be a huge attraction for local people and visitors alike.”
In addition OLE was awarded a grant of £10,000 from “Awards for All” in June, last year, a grant which has been used towards the cost of refurbishing the changing facilities in the swimming pool at the new centre.
