Venue type: Indoor and Outdoor

The Finchley Lido is rather modestly named, being far from simply an outdoor swim experience. It's true that they do have a great open air swimming pool seasonally available, but the real treats are inside!

Their cool family Leisure Pool now features a multi-level Wave Machine (for simple sway or serious swell depending on the ages present in the session), fun spraying air jets, manoeuvrable water cannons and a rolling rapids feature too!

As a bonus this is actually completely separate from the main 25m pool so those who do want to do some actual swimming for development and exercise can do so.

There are also swimming lessons available for over 3s to help facilitate this if they're struggling, and there's no better place than with the water features here as an incentive to do well!

So indoor or outdoor, soothing or thrilling, they're got the wet play you're after right here on the Great North Leisure Park.
