This place was a fantastic fine but the clothes gustapo were quite confusing. You have to have a speedo. You have to leave your clothes on a hanger thing that attendants takr but you can take all sorts in your bag through. My pregnant wife wasn't allowed her hat in the pool and the slip, slop, slap motto must have bypassed this attraction. We got nice and burnt due to lack of shade and not being allowed to bring clothes to cover up in but you can sun bathe topless and take a picnic as long as there's no booze! Was a lovely few hours un a really hot city though and the main pool was very cold!

There are three pools - the old one (mostly for lap swimming), one for kids, and the main one. The main one is new and is stainless steel. It is pretty cold, even in the summer, but is a nice place to swim and has fountains and slides. One big warning for men who plan to swim here - you MUST be wearing a speedo-type swimsuit. They even have a speedo vending machine if you need one, though it was out of order on the day we visited. They will not let you in the pool area, even just to supervise your kids, with standard swim trunks. Women are not allowed to swim with a skirted suit.

The reason this just gets three stars is because of the swimsuit restrictions and the fact that it is kind of pain. After you pay, you go in the locker room to change and must get an attendant to open a (free) locker for you, then you have to wade through a shallow pool, then you are allowed to the swimming area. There aren´t any deck chairs by the main pool, but there are concrete steps where you can sit. After you swim you need to find an attendant again to open your locker for you. The day we were there it was not crowded and there were lots of attendants around.
