The pool is fabulous, kids loved it however the toilets are disgusting, there's no private changing facilities and nowhere to store your belongings. Lifeguards are on duty. It's right in the centre of the town so is handy for getting lunch and ice cream.

Should be closed down until major renovations take place. The grounds and toilets were absolutely. Filthy also. Not impressed.

Pools are freezing and are always filled with dead flies and bugs. Changing rooms are terrible and untidy. Only one good slide which is the big yellow one and just two remind you there are 2 slides. Good for kids.

This place is a disgrace! There is 0 privacy in the changing area, the showers are ridiculous, the staff are ignorant and the pool is filthy. The place needs shut down, certainly wouldn't visit this DUMP ever again,

Even on a cloudy day, it can be enjoyed as the water is warm. Good value for an afternoon. Open from 12 noon. Changing rooms. Parents can stay by poolside.
