This is a great chance to get a tropical leisure park swim indoors and at any time of year! Spennymoor Leisure Centre has a nice big free form Leisure Pool with a large shallow water area ideal for enjoying with the smallest of the smalls.
The rest of the pool is approximately 18 metres wide and 30 metres long so even when it's fairly busy, which it often is, there's usually still plenty of room.
And our reason for listing it: there's also a fun water slide and a wave machine! Hooray! Sadly they are available only during evening, weekend and school holiday sessions but when you can get at them they're heaps of fun and extend the day's entertainment by exponential amounts.
Don't forget to try and fit some actual swimming in as well, it's excellent exercise, good for confidence and most importantly of all it helps keep them safe and sound riverside, seaside and poolside.
Wetsuits can be best for the smalls using the slide, but it's pretty warm in here too so if they get hot easy settle for the cozzie!
