Providing Sport, Leisure and Cultural Opportunities for the Community
“Renfrewshire Leisure will provide or assist in the provision of facilities for recreation, sport, cultural, social or other leisure time occupation as are beneficial to the community, for the general public in, or in connection with the Renfrewshire area and its neighbourhood in furthering the interests of social welfare.”
The transfer of Renfrewshire Councils indoor sports centres and swimming pools in January 2003 through the creation of Renfrewshire Leisure was the direct result of an earlier strategic study on sports provision in the local area.
From the 1 July 2015 Renfrewshire Leisure took on the management of assets such as Town Halls, Libraries, Museums and Paisley Arts Centre along with Sports Development, Active Schools functions and playing fields.
