  • Great outdoor 50 metre pool. Never seems to be too busy in the mornings. So really good to get some quality training done. 
  • It's a nice pool complex, but has many drawbacks especially if you are an novice or unconfident swimmer wanting to use the 25m indoor pool. The 50m outdoor pool is very pleasant in summer, and if you're prepared to swim outside in winter (it is heated) it's not too crowded. A lot of the times I've been there was only one lane for public lap swimming indoors because the rest was being used for swimming lessons. This one lane is pretty narrow with barely enough room to pass doing freestyle let alone breaststroke, so you end up continually being kicked either by the faster swimmers or by kids playing in the adjacent aqua-play lane, or painfully hitting the lane rope floats with your hands and feet because of kids leaning on the lane rope. Also, on the weekends the toddler pool is often closed off for private parties so the 25m pool ends up with nappy clad toddlers in it. Baby poo on the hand rails - big turn off.
  • Run by the council and it feels like it. Signs and regulations everywhere and most annoyingly staff members constantly prowling around staring. Over rated and far too expensive. It's good for kids and obese older people.
  • Pricey compared to others $17.45 for one adult and a 4year old. Great for young kids and toddlers to play, lots of jets and water slide. Wanted to practice my son swimming but less than one narrow swim lane available for aqua play inside (section closed off due to tiles falling off the side wall). No room for him to swim and waste of time. Had 10 min wait for showers, sat morning so it was busy. Not going again, better alternatives around
  • Just try booking swimming lessons for kids. What a nightmare. I don't understand why you go out of your way to make it so difficult. Have to put kids in the water for a 10 minute assessment only to be told there's no available classes. No waiting list. Advised to call every week to check for openings. Yes I want my twins to be in the pool on the same day. Can't secure a spot over the phone, only in person with pen and paper.
  • Regarding resistance training, not a bad facility but at $26.50 a pop, the gym is too pricey and some silly rules make the gym experience less enjoyable than it could be which is a shame. Sadly, the staff still don't makes sure people reset the heavy equipment after they use it, which adds to the lack of value for money. If my child didn't train for basketball here, I wouldn't bother.
