What’s there?

Newmarket Swimming Pool 1

As the name suggests, Newmarket Pool has an Olympic sized 50m outdoor pool that is HEATED! There’s also a covered and heated outdoor 25m pool and an indoor heated programs pool. Children will love the animal-themed splash pad with water-drop buckets and fountains, the twisty slides and giant slides, and the wading pool with mushroom features. If you want to make a day of it there are barbecues and picnic tables on site next to the playground and lawn area, a snack kiosk, and merry-go-round, or you could even indulge in some quiet relaxation on your own when you drop your children at the air-conditioned crèche!
