As the demolition of Clydebank's much-loved Play Drome leisure centre nears completion, speculation is growing on what could - or should - replace it.

A social media post on the 'Call Yersel a Bankie' Facebook group attracted nearly 100 comments after a group member asked what is getting built on the soon-to-be vacant land.

Some voiced hopes that Asda might have competition in the form of another supermarket, while others were wanting a place for kids to enjoy fun activities like rollerskating or water sports.

One comment read: "It should be something for kids, family , something that would bring people to Clydebank."

Another added: "I think it should be something for the kids like a time capsule with ice skating roller scathing mega bowling to get the kids of the streets."

One resident pointed out a page on the website of West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) which says that the site is "under offer".

Clydebank Post:

However, a WDC spokesperson told the Post that this was an error, and that the page had not been updated since a previous plan to sell the site for a retail development fell through.

The site is no longer up for offer and remains for sale.

It’s now four and a half years since the Play Drome’s doors closed for the last time on the opening of the new Clydebank Leisure Centre on the waterfront.

The final phase of clearance work at the site appeared to be well under way this week.

As reported in the Post earlier this year, the site continues to face an uncertain future after West Dunbartonshire Council, which owns the land, saw its plans to sell the site for a retail development fall through.

Demolition began in March – but not before the Post reported on a new video created by a team of ‘urban explorers’ who managed to get past the Play Drome’s security cordon and capture video footage and still photographs from inside the abandoned building.

The video, published just before Christmas, is still available to view on the ‘Urbandoned’ channel on YouTube.
