Go with the kids every other week. There are other pools around that are better (Barnsley Metrodome, Eccleshill, Doncaster Dome) but this is convenient location. Generally the pool is cold but on the odd occasion it is warm. Slides are good. Cjnging rooms could do with a lot more family changing cubicles. If you take young children who have to... More

The second worse aquatic experience of my life second to the time I fell in canal,both as dirty and equally as cold. .The life guards couldn't control the many nationalities that were miss behaving and causing bedlam,zero activities to do for a 2 year old other than beat hyperthermia

We decided to take my 2 year old to a different pool as we normally go to Shipley but as it was bank holiday it wasn't open so we decided on Richard Dunns. Both my husband and I haven't been there for many years so really didn't know what to expect, especially now they have the jungle theme. Firstly I... More

Cost is £4.50 for the adult, baby is free. Reception staff friendly and helpful. They will look after your pushchair at reception if you don't want to take... More

I recently visited the swimming and it was freezing. I know that it can be cold at first but it never warmed up. I thought it was supposed to be an enjoyable experience and to top it all a snake kept firing cold water in the air which made it worse. Myself and Friend are seriously cancelling our membership.

Dirt changing rooms - even the kids were disgusted. The pool was warm and that was good - but the changing room afterwards was freezing. It's been 20 years since I've been - nothing's changed. Won't be back.
