not great lifeguards and the pool is not that clean, you feel looked in on due to the glass that outsiders can see you through

We took our 3 year old for a play here today. The changing area was great with roomy family change areas. All seemed new and clean too. We mainly stayed in the children's area and it was ideal. Our son loved the little slides and the water games in the toddler play area. The children's pool was nice and warm... More

I had several as to spend unaccompanied in Blackburn, but I ahd a pass that allowed me access to the Waves Gym and pool. The gym is an add on to the original waves pool and the equipment was not up to date. That said there were sufficient facilities to cater for the few in attendance. There did not seem... More

This is an average pool but like most of the things in blackburn needs updating. The staff don't look like they are capable of saving a drowning child

When we were leaving I noticed that it was 12.25. I still had the entrance ticket in my bag and we paid at... More

We always enjoy going to this swimming pool as it is different to any of those we have in Preston. The waves are really good fun and seeing these can encourage children to want to learn to swim as then they can then go in the deeper end alone or with their parents where the waves are much larger.
