Crystal swimming pools 
times and information

The centre has recently undergone refurbishment works to the 25 metre pool and changing rooms which offer improved changing, toilet and shower facilities. The leisure pool and 25 metre pool have now re-opened.

The leisure pool offers fun and enjoyment for the whole family. With waves, rapids, slides, fan sprays and other water features you're guaranteed a fun-filled day out. Our 25m pool caters for those wanting a more serious swim or just want to improve their swimming technique.

Swimming is probably the best form of all round exercise available. It’s also a great way to relax and refresh yourself after a stressful day.

 

Lockers are available in various sizes which are £1 coin returnable.
