I swim here three times a week and disagree with the negative comments. It isn't dirty, they don't randomly close and the changing rooms aren't freezing. It is a bit jaded but it's not a new building. The staff are pleasant.

I've been going to Northgate forever and I'm sorry to say it needs to go. It's very outdated and it's very dirty. Nothing has been done to improve it for many years and it looks like it did in the 80's it was probably cleaner...More
