Couldn't have been more disappointed... Don't waste your time...

The changing facilities are not open, apparently due to Covid. I phoned 6 random swimming facilities and they ALL have open changing rooms!! Covid isn't going away, so keep it sanitised and get on with it!

The pool, which according to the website on the day, was at 28 degrees? It was actually freezing, and my eldest child got in and got straight out There's also no decent seating to comfortably sit and watch.

You have access to 2 toilets, which ordinarily wouldn't be a problem, but you struggled to be able to use them as parents were using them to get their kids dried and dressed (which blows the whole "we can't open the changing room due to Covid" speil).

Don't waste your time or money.

Swim
Aug 2020
I booked a lane swim on Monday 10 August from 9.15 to 10.15. I was unhappy with the distancing between swimmers, especially with those who were overtaking others. One swimmer in particular was doing his lengths at his pace and was oblivious to everyone else, quite selfish actually. The management need to make it clear that overtaking is not acceptable. I raised this issue with the pool attendants on duty but they said overtaking was ok. I have swim in a number of outdoor pools recently and these have made it quite clear that overtaking is not allowed.

Great little lido

Nice warm pool on a chilly day. Very reasonable entrance prices. Went to the adult only evening session but noticed there were sessions to suit all interests. It was too cold to sit out the day I visited but the grass area with picnic benches looked very inviting.

Lovely staff, slow swimmers
May 2019 • Solo
I was very impressed by the staff and the easy parking. One gets the impression that the swimmers aren't experienced in the ways of swim etiquette or lane control, but this is a country town, not a competition pool. Pool a bit too warm for a *serious* swim.

A fantastic pool, great for families

Clean, tidy with a good selection of snack food. Can get very busy in the summer, but what would you expect? Spaces to bring your own picnics if you would prefer

Dog swim!
Sep 2018 • Family
We visited a few times over the summer and found the facilities to be excellent, very clean and great for a local attraction.
The highlight of the summer was the dog swim, it was the most fantastic evening of mayhem.
It was a crazy but very relaxed evening of fun and a chance to swim with our spaniel who loves the water. Our children got to swim with the dog which they loved. Great family memories - will book again next year!

Nice Lido

Only open from April to early September this is a well organised clean medium size heated swimming pool with plenty of space for relaxing and sun bathing. Excellent changing facilities and good staff.

A long awaited swim
Aug 2018 • Family
Having arranged to take 3 children to the Lido at the start of the holidays we'd set the date. Wasn't quite as hot as it had been, in fact we were to be seen huddled in towels after getting out of the water for lunch. We soon warmed up with fish baps and chips and cups of tea and coffee. The staff are lovely and a chilly, but great time was had by all.

Great pool with slide. Easy to park and very friendly staff. Would highly recommended to anyone staying in the area wanting to find somewhere for the kids to swim.

Hidden gem!
Aug 2018 • Family
Absolutely fabulous pool, perfect for a summers day. Nice size, the best part is the large grass area for lounging, there are some picnic benches also. You can bring a picnic or there is a cafe selling chips, hot dogs etc. Opens at 12.30, get there earlier on sunny days to join the queue and get a parking space. There are life guards, however, you need to supervise under 8s (and to be honest I would supervise anyway as they did not seem to always have their eye on the pool)
