public swimming pool with children

Hi there,

We will be in Nottingham four days to visit family and I think our 2 year old boy will need some action during the day. I would like to know if there is a swimming pool where I could take him to play. One that does not require membership or anything like that and has an area for kids.

Do you know a place like that?

Thank you!

There is a very good pool at Bramcote on the west side not far from the university and several in the city. Where are you staying and I will try to help you further.

Also for a two year old I am sure that the paddling pool complex on Victoria Boulevard by the river would be great in this warm weather! There is a nice playground nearby too.

Victoria Leisure Centre is the most central one. It's very nice and has a fantastic pool and water play area for little ones. My 2YO keeps asking when we're going back.

Unfortunately it's very hard to find timetables online. I think they are as below, but this looks like the term time timetable, and access will be more open in the summer holidays. I'd suggest giving them a call to check when you want to go.

Bramcote Leisure Centre is also very good. As well as the main pool it has a small family pool (I think 1.2m deep) and a teaching pool (0.7 to 1m deep) that is warm for little ones. Sometimes they have foam toys out. Timetable here

If you don't have a car, you can get the i4 bus there from the city.

P.S. in the same vein as post 2, traditionally kids love to get soaked running through the fountains in the Old Market Square

Lots and lots for kids to do in Nottingham - City Farm, Highfields Park, tram ride to playground on the Forest, feed ducks in the Arboretum, check out the windmill etc. etc.

The best pool for you is Rushcliffe Leisure Centre now known as Rushcliffe Arena which is in West Bridgford - it has a children’s pool,with slides etc. It is the West Bridgford area.
