I've been coming here since I was a kid and now I take my daughter here, yes it's outdated and need of a refurb or complete overhaul but the kids love it and it's still popular so we'll keep coming.

This place is a disgrace. Dirty and stuck in the past. Avoid at all cost. Saving grace staff ok at reception and helpful.

I have just got back from northgate arena. I visited with my 9yr old son, even he noticed how dirty and dingy it was! We usually go to Wrexham and are never dissatisfied but decided on a change..... Never again, the slide wasnt working, there is no area for actual swimming, just bodies diving and bombing every where. The staff... More

Great swimming pool for all types, kids especially, seating round pool for non-swimmers too. Loads of other activities available too. disliked car parking, very difficult to park and drove around for ages waiting for a space.

20 years ago I last visited this place as a teenager. Nothing has changed.. And it should. Everything is brown and outdated.. Everything needs a good refurb. Has a good schedule of events.. But the outdated decor and facilities makes everything feel miserable. Maybe it's just me.

This is good value for money if you are looking for somewhere to take your young child for a swim and splash about. There are slides for toddlers and plenty of shallow areas for them to splash about - there is a big slide for older children too. It's got plenty of space and wasn't overly busy when we visited...

Went for a quick meeting at the coffee shop and had a latte and a chat with friends. The location is good for the city centre and as a facility user you get free parking, which for Chester is brilliant.

local swimming pool good for the summer holidays as they do a free swim however I think it needs a bit of revamp as the equipment in the swimming baths in no where near on par with Wrexham which also provides a free swim in summer holidays
