Hi Sorcha, There are a few sheltered spots around the sides of the facility, including umbrellaed areas around some of the pools. It would still be advised to bring a jacket or warm clothing if you plan to be a spectator... More

Hi, the freshwater pool is 25 metres long. Just note that we have one lane roped off for lap swimming most days - the exceptions are public holidays (and the weekend attached to public holidays), and school holidays.
