The £13.6m The Hive leisure centre will include an eight-lane 25m swimming pool, a learner pool with moveable floor, a 3G artificial grass pitch and club pavilion, a health club with a 120-station gym floor, two activity studios and a four-court sports hall.
Funded by East Cambridgeshire District Council (ECDC) - with the help of a £1.5m Lottery grant from Sport England - the centre has been built by contractor Pellikaan.
The centre is part of the 6.5-acre "Leisure Village" project, developed by Turnstone Estates, which will include a six-screen cinema operated by Cineworld and a number of restaurant units. The commercial developments have been funded by Standard life Investments on behalf of a segregated client.
Tim Deacon, director of Turnstone Estates, said: "Ely Leisure Village will serve a vast catchment north of Cambridge where currently there is no leisure provision.
"Coupled with the proposed swimming and leisure centre in phase two, this is set to be become a major leisure destination."
