National aquatic centre has everything for swimming. It has a river, wave pool, kids playground, olympic pools and more. The stuff is friendly and helpful.

This place feels like is stuck in the past. No proper maintenance and no cleanliness. The NAC needs a total revamp urgently. Also, the price should be reviewed. The fees applied for kids are outrageous, especially when not all kids use the big water slides...More

I recently attended the national aquatic centre with my beautiful girlfriend. The last time we we're there must have been a decade ago. It is safe to assume we will not be returning. Between the snot-riddled jacuzzi and the cheese grater slides, I left with...More
