Went to Christmas show . The ice rink put extra seating in front of original seating . Me and kids and people sitting with us saw nothing . Left in the interval after paying over £5o for tickets . Very disappointing and very in organised . What a shame for all the kids who participated and for those who saw... More

This place needs knocking down and brought up to a good standard it's an eyesore in chelmsford, looks grubby and is a disappointment considering chelmsford council have invested money elsewhere.

Went here for the swimming pool as training for a triathalon . The problem is that people seem to swim in the wrong lanes . In the fast lane you get caught behind middle aged ladies (just like when on the road lol ) and it doesn't get policed by the life guards. Receptionist was quite grumpy / rude too... More

Me and my boyfriend are members for Riverside, we mainly go to the gym. Price is really good if you go at least 3 times a week as if you pay as you go its nearly £6 per time and monthly is £39.50. The only thing I can fault with Riverside is that the gym shuts pretty early on a... More

Having seen some of the terrible reviews in here, thought I'd would be fair to share my opinion. We come to riverside mainly for the soft play. With a three year old who has always been big for his age, this has satisfied him for a long time. And as parents we found this a very safe environment, something you... More

The fiting room are dirty and smell very bad. The pool was full and dirty as well. The outside pool was a little bit better.

Gone for the family fun swimming and got there early in which we had to wait 45 mins to go, the staff knew this but didn't tell us that the fun day wasn't even on, there was a notice saying the learner pool was shut, but when we asked they said there was still 2 more pools so we waited... More

I have dived in the pool so have had a good close up view of the bottom and it is filthy with algae growing. Never used it again. Also my son broke his leg ice skating and the care he received was totally incompetent. They just weren't interested.

We decided to take our grandchildren swimming last Saturday 9th Aug, although the children enjoyed the experience, my husband and my self were disgusted with the filth, all the gullies were black and didnt look like they had been cleaned, the pool had clumps of hair in it, the whole place looked like it could do with a deep clean....
