I think we are so lucky to have this venue in Palmerston North. It is always warm and clean and the staff are friendly. If you join the gym, which is certainly worthwhile everything is free, classes, swims, spa, so good! Just perfect!

Children allowed at the facility unsupervised from 8 years old, but we strongly recommend that an adult is at the facility with them until they are competent swimmers and over 8 years old. Thanks
