“Great Day Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Will definitely return.
Lovely warm pool, changing areas and toilets nice and clean.
Lifeguards who are on the ball (whistle going often which is reassuring)
Lots of space to sit and plenty of shade.
Even when busy you don't feel cramped.
There is a car park just opposite and 4 hours cost £4.50 but we could've done with an extra hour as time flew so fast.
Not signposted very well but if you go over the crossing that runs between Clark's Village down to the end of the road and turn left you will see railings ahead on the right and its there.

“Splendid Fathers Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Spent a fantastic day with my hubby, youngest daughter and her boyfriend, 2nd eldest daughter and her grandson. Pool as wonderfully warm as always, grass areas clean and tidy, and perfect warm showers and clean changing areas. Best pool in the UK beyond any doubt

“Best pool in Somerset!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

I came to greenbank on a hot day in may and it was very busy but because of the lovely spacious surroundings there was always space on the well kept lawns around the pool and never felt cramped. When the pool got a bit busy we could go over to the splash area. As an ex lifeguard in my youth I can't imagine how the staff deal with the volume of people in the pool and manage to keep the pool safe and are so polite when they remind you of the safety rules. I have been to many pools where the lifeguards look unapproachable but the staff here explain the reasons for the rules and if anything should be a problem I felt I could walk up to any of them and discuss it. The staff do a great job and we stayed the whole day. At the end of the day we noticed some young teens working picking up litter it's great to see all ages getting a chance to work at this fabulous place. We would recommend this clean family friendly place for a family day out and people of all ages. Definately getting a season ticket!

“Great on a sunny day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

Visited for the first time on a lovely sunny day with a friend and 3 little ones. Lovely large, warm baby pool with a slide. Also a great splash area which was great to cool off in. Could have done with being fenced off though to keep the little ones in.

Large grassed area with plenty of trees to provide shade.

Great facility and will be back.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

The pool only opened on the 3rd May and I have been everyday! The water is warm, the pool is clean the staff are some if the nicest people I have ever met!
I know if you stay on the right side of the rule you will have them it's fantastic day!
If you don't go just once this year you are a fool! A pool not to be passed by!
