- Swimming Pools and Leisure Centres
The Newport Centre has a leisure pool with slide and wave machine in a warm and tropically themed environment. The flume slide is several tight coils of solid flume, more than enough to keep most kids charging back for more!
There's good lifeguard cover, well maintained facilities and sensibly spaced zones to accommodate slide users, wave seekers and actual swimmers. Room for everyone!
There's also a welcoming beach entry area great for toddlers with a much smaller and gentler water slide ideal for the kiddies. There's a huge but charming octopus mosaic just beneath the water here and the palm tree island adds a nice touch. This is also the area you'll want to start out in while you acclimatise to the wave machine as it's easy to get unsteady in the swell especially if it's not just yourself you're keeping afloat! If yours are still depending on your physical support then start off sitting in varying degrees of the shallows, and progress gradually.
Please note that it's well worth checking ahead for flume availability when you know which day you're aiming at as they do not operate the wave machine nor the flume slide during swimming lessons. It's certainly not worth having those sad little voices in your ear, as you well know: so check ahead!
