The Leisure Pool offers fun and enjoyment for the whole family. With waves, rapids, slides, fan sprays and other water features you're guaranteed a fun-filled day out. Our 25m pool caters for those wanting a more serious swim or just want to improve their swimming technique. An extensive programme is available including adult and junior swimming lessons, parent and toddler sessions and numerous aquafit classes.

Swimming is probably the best form of all round exercise available. It’s also a great way to relax and refresh yourself after a stressful day.
