The 25m swimming pool at Pendle Wavelengths has a gently sloping beach which edges into the warm water, ideal for young children and a nice place to sit and watch them play.
For the bigger jobs the leisure pool also has a ceiling high water slide (that's mainly open flume but includes a black hole feature!) plus a wave machine that fills the pool with swell at regular intervals!
It's pretty strong so be sure to start out in the shallows when the waves start and get the hang of things before progressing, especially if you're not the only body that you're having to keep up! And be sure to wear a costume not a wet-suit as there are no zips allows down the slide.
There's also a Junior Fitness Zone for 8 to 15 year olds which is an excellent introduction to cardiovascular fitness but you've got to walk the walk too because an adult has to train with them. Ha!

My 3 small children (5,6&8) have weekly swimming lessons here and also regularly come for swimming sessions which they get free with their swimming lessons, as do i with my activo membership. It's a clean,safe,well staffed and maintained pool, the sloping pool means its good for all ages and my 3 love the waves and curly slide. We also enjoy the food,theres something delicious for everyone made by the lovely cafe staff. For the grown ups there's a brilliant spa which is a bargain at £18 for 2 hours (£8 for members) and Upstairs is the gym I've lost 6 stones with and a brilliant junior gym for the kid's aged 8+
