Swimming Pool

 

The swimming pool is 20 metres long and 7.5 metres wide, with a depth of 0.7m at the shallowest point to 1.7m in the deep end.

In addition to serving the needs of Allestree Woodlands School during term-time, the pool also provides a range of swimming and water-based activities to the local community, particularly for babies, children, young people and senior citizens.

To keep our pool as clean as possible, all swimmers are recommended to wear swimming hats.
