The LC is a leisure centre located in the city centre of Swansea, Wales, UK. Originally Swansea Leisure Centre, the rebranded facility re-opened to the public on 1 March 2008 after a £32 million makeover. The LC's exterior has been revitalised by replacing the old concrete panels with clear glass, translucent glazing and timber panelling.[1]


Swansea Leisure Centre was opened by the Queen during her silver jubilee celebrations in 1977. The original centre featured the first wave machine to be installed in a leisure centre in Wales; it became one of Wales' top leisure facilities and a substantial tourist draw, attracting more than 800,000 users annually at its peak. After its closure in 2003, Swansea Council decided to refurbish the centre, which was reopened - again by the Queen - on 7 March 2008.[2]


The LC waterpark's features include water slides, board rides, a 30 ft climbing wall, an indoor play area, a multi-purpose sports and exhibition hall (which was an official training facility for the 2012 London Olympics), exercise areas and a spa and sauna section.[3]
