Great outdoor pool, well maintained, clean and tidy. Supported and run by a fabulous ten of volunteers to keep this gem of a facility open to the general public. Extremely popular with affordable daily pass or season pass rate.

Small pool but great for training . Welcoming and friendly people. As a swimmer wanting to train it was excellent temperature, not too hot, nor too cold. Has adults only sessions which is good, and there were only 5 of us in the water. Bliss.
