An amazing collection of pools (some 50m) indoor and outdoor and kids friendly. Adjacent the river where you can have a long circuit walk up one side, cross the river and return.

Love coming here with our family. They swim for hours and we relax. Then we let them dry off on the playground whilst packing up. The pools are massive and food is available to buy. Always a good day at Riverway
