The center features a full-size swimming pool, a basketball court, full cardio and weight training centers, badminton courts, squash courts, a dance studio, a rollerblading rink, putting ranges, and pool tables. The variety of exercise and recreation facilities attract a wide variety of visitors and increase overall public health.
