“fun and affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

The waterslide was fun and the kids loved the small lazy river. The pool is very big, so lots of room even when the pool is busy. The kids water area is nice, but small and very crowded when the pool is full.
the big kids loved being able to jump off the platform diving boards. So many pools do not allow it, so it was a treat.
The family rate is nice as we have 5 kids.

“Has Some Issues”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

For a newer "state of the art" facility it's already getting run down and shabby looking; especially areas of the women's locker room. Mold and rust are visible and the shower heads are the worst! Thin little streams of water shooting in every direction making it almost impossible to rinse the shampoo out of your hair. Also, I've swam at numerous other facilities and I must say the pool deck at this centre is the most slippery I've walked on. However, the competitive pool is clean and kept at a good temperature so I do keep coming back for my swimming workouts.

“Management frustrates regular users”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Although this facility has a lot going for it, in spite of the fact that it's looking a bit shabby less than 5 years after being built (rusty fittings and black mould, anyone), it's frustrating to use, as least for lap swimmers

The people in charge of scheduling treat the very customers who want to use it most, the worst. Many swimmers, including me, are willing to drive all the way across town to swim in a 50 meter pool at least once a week. So of course management cancels the Sunday morning lane swim at the drop of a hat, sometimes for weeks at a time. We feel that we come dead last on their list of priorities, yet we're the most likely go out of our way to use this facility.

Phone first if you want to swim laps, you never know when they're going to cancel it.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Pay your admission and go swimming, watersliding, diving, hottubbing, or make use of the track upstairs. We needed an evening activity to keep 31 students busy - this was perfect and the lifeguards were absolutely excellent.

“A Great Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This building offers many amenities all under one roof. There is a gym, meeting rooms, family pool, and competitive pool. There is also good spectator seating for viewing competitions. A nice place to have a sporting venue.
