Two Pools and More!

The Flakeboard Therapy Pool is the smaller of our two pools. It is 1m deep all the way through and kept at a higher temperature than the leisure pool, so it’s perfect for relaxing your muscles. This pool contains a bench with jets and is also connected to a small waterslide. The Kiwanis Leisure Pool is the bigger of our two pools. This pool is 25m in length, with the shallow end being 1.2m deep and the deep end dropping to 3m. The temperature in this pool is kept slightly cooler than the therapy pool.
