A bit outdated

It's worth a visit before our council shuts it down a bit dirty and cold slides are fun plenty of showers great to take kids but not really ideal for swimming lengths

Went on a Saturday morning to see the Granddaughter doing Judo, parked no problem and it's free. They were only just putting up the signs to show the way to the event and as most people were there already should have done that a lot sooner particularly for people who had not been before. No charge for spectators but the... More

Not sure where to start ! I'm disabled and traveled with my daughter to attend a sporting event. We tried to park in a disabled bay as car was full. I have a blue badge but was told by staff we could not park in the disabled bays (few empty) as staff were parking there as very busy. I agree... More

However, upon arrival, we quickly realised that the parking facilities were too small for the centre itself, and we ended up having to park in a nearby car park for a small fee. There was... More

On arrival there was hardly any parking spaces so we were restricted. Once inside- there was a queue (with all places of course) I was charged a lot of money but kept my hopes high it would be worth it. Once in the changing rooms it was packed and there was mums not controlling their own children. I began to... More

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
