Bo’ness Recreation Centre Closure

We can now confirm that the last day of operation for the centre will be Friday 3 May 2024.

Bo’ness Recreation Centre will close due to building condition concerns, backlog in maintenance costs and the level of subsidy required. 

You can view more information on how the decision was made here. 

We can now confirm that the last day of operation for the centre will be Friday 3 May 2024.    

We will be cancelling all activity booked from Saturday 4 May onwards and customers will receive a refund for any bookings that are no longer able to go ahead.   

In the meantime, we will be operating the business as usual until Friday 3 May and will continue to offer all previous activities unless advised otherwise.  

Bo’ness Academy (the Academy) returns to council ownership in August 2025. Until this time, community access to the Academy will continue to be managed under the contractual arrangements between the current operators Class 98 and Falkirk Council. The existing contract does enable bookings within the school for evenings and weekends.  

We are currently reviewing Bo’ness Recreation Centre and Academy bookings to determine availability at the Academy, identify booking conflicts and assess this information against community access needs.  

We will be in touch with customers in due course, once we have a better understanding of the bookings and contract arrangements in Bo’ness Academy. 

Officers have been tasked with reporting back at the June 2024 Council meeting, proposals to enhance community provision of sport and leisure in the school estate including specifically at Bo’ness Academy. 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding the building closure can be found here.
