Excellent place for a decent swim. Plenty of space with various lanes for different speeds of swimming. Liked it that the pool was the full 50 metres length even if this always seems like harder work. Often the pool is divided up at various times...More

This is very limited, the events are usually on at the weekends and so there is slightly more on street parking available as the regulations for parking are different.
