The layout of the pool is perfect for all types of swimmers, no matter your swimming ability. It’s great for all of the family to enjoy a quick splash during a break away. With an all-around depth of 1.2 metres, it is also ideal for complete beginners or nervous swimmers as they can always keep their feet on the ground. However, the lanes also ensure that it is conducive for the avid lane swimmer looking to develop and improve their techniques.
