Had Its Day

Its had its good days. It does show signs of age but on the whole is a reasonable place to have a fun time swimming with family or friends.

Great fun pool, we loved the lazy river, rings freely available, wave machine was great fun, with announcements before they switch on the waves so you can move into quiet pool, big water sprinkler fountain in children's area with little slides and fun things around the pool side, big slides not on during the week unless it's school holidays, small...

The pool operates a band system at peak times limiting you to 90mins from when that band colour started. It includes you getting changed so come ready to swim or your lose more time. The outdoor rapids has never been open in all the time we have visited so its probably closed forever as it was hot today and still... More

I took my kids there whilst they were visiting from America. I asked about the flumes and was told they weren't working. I specifically asked about the lazy river and was told it was working, so we went in. The whole outside section was closed off. I asked when it was opening and was told 35-40 minutes. An hour passed... More

very badly designed, I almost drown here with my 6 year old grandson when he fell off the float and we both found we were in the deep end, it took me a few minutes to get a grip after having to be rescued it does have a sign saying non swimmers etc, but you can easily get caught up... More

My children have always loved it here. However it been going for decades and now it feels very old and tired. The whole place is feels grim and dirty. The changing rooms are completely disgusting! The place needs a revamp and a really good clean!!! We won't be going back.

Visited the beach pool on the Sunday after half term. The pool was ostensibly packed so they had us queuing outside in the rain. After waiting around 30mins we finally go in only to find the pool felt barely half full. I understand if the pool is too packed this spills the experience for all but given the length of... More

The floors of the changing rooms are really dirty since the council stopped running the pool and Fusion took over. Also there is no music like there used to be and the water in the pool is not as warm. Cuts backs!!!!

First impressions from the outside is of a fun time but the outside is in need of tidying up and perhaps a feature to make that more enticing. Each session is timed by coloured bands that should last 90 minutes so save time and have swim wear already on! The changing area is small and very limited family changing booths... More
