  • The pool is perfect for a day out with the family. It's not glamorous and could do with a few improvements but for the admission prices it's well worth a visit.  more »

  • It's a nice pool. It's quiet and not too expensive. There's huge potential to make it even better and more popular. On a sunny summer's day, my 2-year-old daughter got cold after ten minutes, even though she was in a wetsuit. Solar heating or a heat pump in the sea and an overnight cover to make it a little warmer would be a huge benefit. Slides (like there used to be), a splash park area (like Maldon) or a floor-fountain thing (like in Sheffield city centre), would draw more kids in and keep them entertained. With these facilities I would certainly get a season ticket for the family and I know at least a few other families who would too. I know these suggestions have been made time and again. I do not understand the reluctance of those in charge to make the necessary improvements to make the pool not just sustainable but profitable and popular. Let's turn it into something fantastic.
  • kids loved it. being outdoors you have to have the weather or be very brave. lots of parking close by.
  • Nice Pool value for money .Water was bit cold has to improve the cleanness of the changing rooms
  • I've not been swimming here but after looking through the gate it looks ok and it's wet
  • Great fun but soooo very cold
