When this opened (about 1989 i think) it was state of the art. Sadly it hasn't been very well looked after and is showing it's age.
The last few times i've been there with the kids the water has been cold, some or other facility has been unavailable or something along those lines. As a student, it's relatively cheap to get in but that's pretty much the only good point for me.
That said, my kids thoroughly enjoy it every time they go. The people that currently run the centre on behalf of the council are undertaking a renovation program so once that is completed, i'll revise my review if warranted.
This could be very much better than it is.. Changing rooms vary in cleanliness from mildly dirty and scummy to very dirty with plasters on the floor. Activities on offer appear reasonable. Scumline often seen around the water. if you are lucky you may even have a bobbing malteser (or poo) pass you nearby!! Slides open at various times, as do the pools, which are normally at times when i cant get there! Water always feels quite cool, not the best place to go to locally, but with the renovation i look forward to a state of the art swimming center
