“A must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Beautifully landscaped, easy walking, good variety of plants and water features. Friendly ducks escorted us and we enjoyed the sense of humour displayed in some features and signs. A unique display of drinking cans was a fascinating.

“dont bother!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

this is a public pool, expensive and you need a locker or someone to watch your gear! Often pool area can be closed if testing results dont make standard so check at admission before you pay.the do have a fitness centre and work out classes if you need a gym.

“A bit pricey for a public swimming pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Lots of ranges of pools however the hydro slides are a bit pricey and you only get half an hour of use it would be better if it was unlimited or at least a couple of hours. Sometimes some of the pools are shut or shut off for sports etc so you are a bit restricted for choice. I personally don't like the hustle and bustle and find the place to be a bit grimey and would prefer to swim elsewhere if possible.

“V good swimming facility”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

50m pool is usually divided into 2 x 25m pools, lanes are packed from 4pm to 7pm with swim clubs training, okay for causal lane swimming at off peak times. There are hydroslides and an unheated outdoor pool and BBQ areas. Little cafe makes very good coffee. There is also a gym upstairs
