The £26m Dover District Leisure Centre is set to open its doors on February 2019.
Designed by GT3 Architects, the centre has been built by BAM Construction
Designed by GT3 Architects, the centre will include a competition-standard eight-lane pool with spectator seating for 250 people, 15m learner pool with movable floor, sauna, steamroom and a health club with a 120-station gym floor and three group exercise spaces - including an indoor cycling studio.
There will also be a four-court multi-sports hall, two squash courts, multifunction room, clip 'n' climb wall and a café.
Outdoor facilities include two outdoor 3G artificial pitches for five-a-side football.
Built by BAM Construction, the facility has been designed to meet the latest Sport England facilities requirements - including access for people with a wide range of disabilities - and has received a £1.5m grant from Sport England's Strategic Facility Fund.
The centre will be operated by Places Leisure (Places for People Leisure), which won a tender process for a 12-year management contract. Places Leisure currently operates 116 leisure facilities on behalf of local authorities across the country.
Councillor Keith Morris, leader of Dover District Council, said: "The new Dover District Leisure Centre represents a major investment in the health and well-being of the district.
"It's going to be an amazing facility for all the family."
