This information has been put together by the team at Hyde Leisure Pool, with the help from disabled families and users.
A pool with a difference! Hyde Leisure pool is a large swimming pool with lots of extras like a bubble area, geysers, water jets and water cannons. At the side of the pool is a lazy river (an open topped tunnel area of fast moving water that tugs you along) and for those who dare there is the Red Ripster water slide (a minimum height requirement of 1 Metre applies).
The pool also has a wave machine which is turned on for five minute blasts making waves throughout the whole pool – but there are warnings before this happens should you want to exit the pool during the wave feature. The pool starts shallow and goes to a deep end and is therefore also accessible for smaller children or those not too confident in the water. This is an ideal pool for children who enjoy a more active, varied and exciting swimming experience
