The Cardiff International pool is a perfect fun pool. It covers all age groups for play. It is a perfect wet weather day attraction.

Took my kids (4 and 2 1/2) to the leisure pool today as a treat and was really disappointed. Very expensive, not really suitable for little kids and so cold after an hour my children were shivering and beginning to go blue at the lips....More

Its a great fun pool but the water/air temp is so cold we just can't bring ourselves to go there, especially in the winter. Try Swansea LC2, Which is tropical by comparison with decent slides and wave machine.
