Pleased with renovations-good areas for toddlers and a seperate waist deep pool in addition to the main pool area which always has laps for fast swimmers and slow ones like me;keeping a reasonable area for public who wish to "have fun" . When I hurt my knee I was pleased to use the gentle and attractive ramp into the pool.

We popped in here while travelling as we had a free afternoon and wanted to chill out by the pool for the afternoon. The pool was modern, with lots of parking, was clean and had a lot of trees and grass so that you could spread out in the shade without sitting on top of other people!

In my recent circumnavigation of Australia I swam in a wide variety of places and pools, and this was one of the best.
