An enjoyable time at the pool which has a childrens pool, main pool and a diving pool. Parents can sit down and watch their children enjoying themselves in safety.

“Aberdare swimming pool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Lovely children's pool, for small children only. No slides, just a simple square pool which is shallow . Very lengthy much larger pool, which is a decent size. One slide at the end. There is a cafe upstairs and a snooker room and small gym with sauna , v.nice. Tuesday evenings are swimming lesson night and closed off from the general public, except those children having lessons. Parking during the evening is difficult at present as there is construction of a super school on site. This will be on going for some months to come. All in all the swimming pool is an excellent facility located spitting distance from Aberdare town centre.

“good pool and facilities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013

Great swimming pool. The kids pool is lovely and warm although it can get a little crowded.

The large pool has plenty of room for all (33 metres long I believe), and it is not usually that crowded.

There are lots of events such as swimming lessons on, so would check availability before arriving.

Diving pool is superb and there is a viewing gallery to watch the swimming and diving.
