Lovely pools available, with clean changing rooms and showers. The staff were helpful and smiling. Quite a busy pool with swimming training and events on.

The floors often feel dirty and the staff at the front desk can be pretty snappy and unhappy sometimes. Facilities are good enough though with a wave pool, spa, 50m (or 2x25m) and a two dive pools (often being used by water walkers).

Would recommend this to anyone visiting Dunedin with kids. They have 7 pools, all heated, lots of diving boards, a wave pool, lazy river, spa and two hydro slides. Great value entertainment for the kids with pool temperatures ranging from 28 to 32 degrees. Dunedin...More

Great prices, even to be able to use the pool slides. Large size and wave machine, great for all ages. Clean and tidy, but no cafe, and only vending machines at entrance working.

This pool has everything you could want from a community swimming space. We tend to spend most of our time in the family pool with occasional waves, foutains and a lazy river to mix things up. There is a main pool for lengths and also...More

I didn't use any of the slides or anything. It's a good swimming pool with very impressive facilities, but I wouldn't recommend it as a tourist attraction. I guess it would be a good option if you're a family and it's a miserable day outside....More

Good to see young children now have to wear a wrist band so lifeguards can quickly see if they are away from their caregivers. The waterslides are great for all ages. Aquajogging is loads of fun.

Yes you can. You have to pay a deposit but you’ll get it back when you return them. $6 for swimming togs and $6 for towel plus the $20 deposit.
