Ok, but below expectation

An OK family swimming pool other 2 spiral slides, but the water was a bit cold and the whole experience was a bit stunted. Did not meet expectation.

Usual local authorities swimming pool and sports center. Swimming, climbing wall, sauna and other sports available. Large building contains pool and other sporting areas. Pool has two water slides but this costs extra. Very good staff and customer service. Price is reasonable for what is available

Had celebrity players, Ronnie osullivan, judd trump & Jimmy White. Was a well organised & very entertaining evening. Drinks, bar, & food avaliable. Was set up just like the crucible and everyone had a good view of the tables. I understand this was a sell out and can understand why. Was a great evenings entertainment for snooker fans, the celebrities... More

Slides are fun and life guards always making sure people are safe. Sometimes can be strict but overall fun thing to do!! At the weekend it's busy and family swim on Sunday, bring your family and have a blast

Called by today with my teenage son for the slides. The changing rooms are absolutely minging. The patrons seemed to be predominantly Asian, but then it is Bradford. Surly teenage yobs, under little if any supervision, I reckon if I hadn't been there my son would have found it very intimidating. The stench of stale sweat in the cubicles in... More

It's worth a visit before our council shuts it down a bit dirty and cold slides are fun plenty of showers great to take kids but not really ideal for swimming lengths
