The centre is surrounded by beautiful greenery, newly refurbished tennis courts, an outdoor table tennis table, a park, bicycle pump track and football MUGAs.
We are continuously striving to improve our facilities at BLC. The facility consists of a newly refurbished gym which was completed in 2024 and a brand-new indoor cycling studio which was completed in 2023. In 2022, we invested in our health suite and had a more modern sauna and steam room fitted, alongside new showering facilities.
On our upper floor you will find our fully kitted studio where you can experience our fitness classes from both Les Mills and the HIIT Company.
We also offer support services such as Up and Active who work together with those who are looking to return to fitness through an exercise referral program.
Padiham Leisure Centre is located on Park Road in Padiham. Please drive slowly on entry, as it is likely there will be children, due to what the centre offers and the available activities surrounding the centre.

The use of both car parks is free for all centre users, and you don’t need to pay & display. However, we do ask that all cars are parked inside a designated bay; parking outside a bay or in a disabled bay without correctly displaying a badge may result in a fixed penalty fine.
