The Quarry's main leisure pool is one of the biggest in the county at a whopping 33m long! Within those broad shores it has 6 lanes, 3 diving boards, a smashing 51m flume and spectator gallery, plus there's another 25m pool with no features just for swimming, a 10m teaching pool, and 18m lessons pool!

Basically every aquatic need covered - there's even an outdoor padding pool available June through September, which is free to use and open to the public weekends and during school holidays. Bonus!

With such a variety of pools you've got a naturally larger menu of options for the day, ideal if it's local to you because repeat visits are convenient but can also vary considerably! It's a definite boon being able to have kids learn and develop in the shadow of that massive waterslide, what finer incentive could there be? Do well and you can use the flume...

Plus Wednesday and Friday evenings there's a session for 8 to 15 year olds only where they add games, inflatables and music and give the occasion more of a party feel! It's only 6pm til 7pm though so no worries about them exhausting themselves having been at school all day.

There's also a gym on site so if you've got teenagers or several adults there's potential for splitting forces and enjoying that side of the facilities as well.
