Ainslie Park Leisure Centre

Ainslie Park Leisure Centre has been keeping the community of north Edinburgh active for years. It’s easy to keep fit and enjoy a healthy active lifestyle at Ainslie Park, whether you’re looking to swim, hit the gym, get stuck into a fitness class or play racquet sports. 

The centre is easily accessible by public transport, car and even by bike, so you can warm up on your way here! We’re also proud to offer a wide range of coaching programmes, including dance, gymnastics, judo and swimming. You can find out more about these here.

There's more changes coming to our lane and casual swim sessions. From 15th August:

  • you won't have to book for any casual or lane swims, simply drop in.
  • you won't be restricted to an hour in the pool (dependant on pool opening hours).
  • families can drop in for a Family Casual Swim.

You can still book into a Family Fun Session or a Relaxed Swim Session as normal - here's a link to where you'll be able to see our adult/child ratios and all the sessions you can enjoy in our pools.

You can book an activity at Ainslie Park Leisure Centre online or via our mobile app for Android or iOS by creating or logging in to your booking account. 


Whether you are a member, have an Edinburgh Leisure discount card or a Pay as You Go account, you'll be able to access and enjoy all the activities available at Ainslie Park Leisure Centre. Any problems see our step by step guide to booking classes.

Please read our Booking Terms & Conditions before booking.
