    We visit the leisure centre quite regularly as my daughters do various activities there, however we rarely swim as a family. I have to say we were very disappointed recently when we all went. The pool...  more »

    the pool itself is showing signs of its age now. it was built in the early 1990's along with the rest of the building. The main issue with hillsborough is that it is filthy. from the reception area to...  more »

    This leisure pool is definitely for the younger generation. It is fun packed with a baby pool, two fairly large slides and a toddler slide. It is a great and fun day out for the kids with lots to do.  more »

  • I really love the pool and enjoy with my baby and my 6 year old. Breastfeeding friendly and cafe inside the pool area which makes it easy to control the children while having a coffee. Prices are not bad and staff are ok. However it is
  • The staff are very friendly and welcoming. i use the gym and go to some of the fitness classes here which are fantastic. The gym has a lot of new equipment, so no more waiting around to use weight machines. The treadmills do not seem as good as the ones at Ponds Forge but it's not a big problem. The only thing to let Hillsborough Leisure Centre down is the Sauna/Steam room. It's smells funny and appears dirty. The stairs down to it are not at all appealing/inviting. It is also a shared facility which can be a little intimidating for some women going on their own. But apart from that it's a good venue.
  • Torn between 4 and 5 stars, i think the swimming pools and slides provide a great fun activity for the family, went to a pool party which was fantastic! Really hate the changing area, trying to get changed in a tiny cubicle with 2 young children, impossible!!!! Showers fine, hair dryer didn't work.
  • Hillsborough Pool(s) Hillsborough swimming pool is one of the main reasons our son was able to swim a length before his third birthday (YouTube : Daniel DS Swimming) so I`ve got to give it 5 stars. It`s suitable for all ages, has slides and stuff to keep kids interested, a baby pool for the really young children (it IS suitable for babies, temperature wise), and a roped off deeper end for kids who can actually swim. Most importantly, the leisure pool is open all day everyday till 8.00PM (4.30PM Sat & Sun), so there`s no excuse for not taking your kids at least once a week ! NOTE : it does tend to get a bit full in the school holidays and, particularly, at the weekends. It also has a lanes pool, but, it must be said, they`re not the best. They`re not open all the time, they tend to be a bit full, the pool is only 20m long, and, worst of all, it`s a bit warm for serious swimming. But it`s still an option if Ponds Forge is closed or for parents taking it in turns lane swimming whilst the other one is in the leisure pool with the kid(s). Basically Hillsborough Pool(s) are invaluable for those with kids.
  • Cheap and cheerful. We normally go to Barnsley Metrodome. Changing rooms for families are frustrating as there aren't many and most people were taking advantage so long wait. Pool area was ok but not much choice for little kids. But for the price it seems fair.
