Fun and learning activities
children – relief for parents!
Apart from the three lanes for lap swimming, the pool is kept free for using the two small slides and general recreational swimming.
The smaller teaching pool (12.5m x 7.3m) is usually available for children to enjoy as it has a gentle graduation from the steps into a maximum depth of 0.9 metres. It is ideal for young children to lose any fear of water and many a baby under 12 months has made its first swimming strokes here.
We also hold the following organised activities throughout the year:
Parent & toddler (under 5’s)
This 90 minute session gives parents and under 5’s exclusive use of the teaching pool. 10.30 am-12 noon Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please note this does not include admission to afternoon swimming sessions. See the group swimming lessons page for more detail.
