The outdoor pool opens on Monday 8 April 2019! Open seven days a week during the summer months, our four lane, 25 metre outdoor swimming pool is set in a large grass and patio area, heated to a constant 29ºc and staffed by qualified lifeguards making it great for relaxing during those warm summer days.
