Papal Visit - Facilities Closed


Due to the Papal visit this month, Bellahouston Leisure Centre and the Palace of Art for Sports Excellence will both be closed from 15 – 17 September.

Bellahouston Ski and Snowboard Centre and House for an Art Lover, will also be closed, on September 16.

Pope Benedict XVI will be celebrating mass in Bellahouston Park on Thursday 16 September, as part of his State Visit to the UK. Up to 100,000 people are expected to attend the religious ceremony.

A spokesperson for Glasgow Life said: “These centres will be closed due to the vast numbers of people that will come to the south side of the city to attend the Papal mass. Customers can make other arrangements at Glasgow Club’s Nethercraigs or Gorbals facilities, which are the closest to Bellahouston Park, or at any other centre in the city.”
