Parent & Toddler

One corner of the shallow end is roped off and filled with toys, floats and balls to create a fun area for you to splash around with small children.

Family Wacky Water

The whole shallow end is roped off with balls, floats and the Octopus inflatable in the pool. This session is perfect for younger children to come and have a fun time in the pool. Public swimming is still permitted in the deep end. (aimed at families with children under 8yrs)
