Eirias Park is a 50acre public park in Colwyn Bay, Conwy County Borough, Wales, sometimes described as "The park by the sea".
Situated within the park is the Colwyn Leisure Centre, whose facilities include a six-lane 25-metre swimming/leisure pool with various water features and a separate water slide. There is also a fitness suite, health suite, sauna, steam room and warm spa pool. The newly developed Eirias Events Centre, built in 2011, holds conference and classroom facilities for business and commerce events, as well as an indoor pitch, a gym and high performance sports analysis facility.
Outdoor facilities within the complex, includes a sports stadium, Eirias Stadium, with a grandstand and floodlit synthetic hockey/football playing area. Additional facilities include indoor and outdoor tennis courts, bowling greens, boating lake, children's playground and picnic area.
Stadiwm Zip World is a rugby union stadium that is part of the outdoor complex of the Eirias Events Centre. The stadium had been used for low key community sporting events, until its redevelopment in 2011, where it now can host international televised events.
The original Stadium pre 2011, had been used for various sporting events. Colwyn Bay F.C. had played on three different grounds at Eirias Park during their history. The Arena was a temporary home during the early 1980s prior to the club's move to their present Llanelian Road home ground. In 2008 the park had been identified by the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) as a venue for the newly founded rugby union team RGC 1404. The team was initially planning to join the Welsh Premiership, with an eventual goal of becoming the fifth Welsh rugby region, for domestic and European tournaments. In light of this, the park were in need of a number of improvements that reaches international standard and so that it can be officially considered a stadium. In January 2010, the proposed redevelopment was approved by the local council, with work starting later that year.
