Open roof during summer (and the midnight special swims), Fantastic staff, and management, great community atmosphere, clean water, warm showers. Everything you could possibly want. Yes, it's very cheap as well.

Pool wasn't as clean as other pools I have been in, but I didn't really mind. Had a good hour Lane swimming on the saturday with my other half. Just before they had all the floats in for the fun session which was quite packed before the change over

I was really lucky to visit Waterside Swimming Pool with my Grandson on a sunny day - as I no longer swim with him, it was so pleasant sitting there watching with the roof open. There was plenty of activity on the lake beside the pool to watch too while drinking a coffee. We had visited during a fun hour... More

They have various swim sessions to suit everyone, but I went for the lane swim. Not too busy and had a slow, medium and fast lane. As it was a lovely day the roof was also open slightly keeping the place pleasantly aired. Water was a lovely temperature allowing you to get straight in. Staff pleasant, changing rooms fairly decent... More

On hot days they open the roof ...... More

Under Community management the Waterside pool has become a favourite place to swim and relax with both the locals and some holiday makers. With its retractable roof (open during the summer months) and fully glazed walls and roof the combination of sun and warm water raises the spirits for me. There are sessions for lane swimmers, adults and family casual... More
