A bit outdated

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

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

The slides were not open which must have been the main attraction when it opened but now... More

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

Went on a Saturday morning to see the Granddaughter doing Judo, parked no problem and it's free. They were only just putting up the signs to show the way to the event and as most people were there already should have done that a lot sooner particularly for people who had not been before. No charge for spectators but the... More

Not sure where to start ! I'm disabled and traveled with my daughter to attend a sporting event. We tried to park in a disabled bay as car was full. I have a blue badge but was told by staff we could not park in the disabled bays (few empty) as staff were parking there as very busy. I agree... More

Both myself and my partner had been to Richard Dunn Sports Centre as children, and were very much excited to go again as a couple. However, upon arrival, we quickly realised that the parking facilities were too small for the centre itself, and we ended up having to park in a nearby car park for a small fee. There was... More

I had a 8month old baby there is no where to sit your baby while you get dressed / into swimwear & the changing rooms are freezing so your baby is purple 😮 I had to change my baby on a bench with a blanket onit & get changed under my towel not happy at all won't go again 😡
