Nova Centre Swimming Pool
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair
Brilliant accessible swimming pool
Transport & Parking
Large car park, fairly flat and plenty of accessible bays
Centre has recently been renovated so everything is new. Level flooring and all doors easy to get through. Pool is a very long way from reception so could be tricky getting there if you find walking a long way hard. Everywhere seems clean, well lit and signage looked ok. Very big changing room. Toilet with grab rails. Level access shower with a fold down seat and a curtain to pull round. Height adjustable changing bed. All incredibly clean and well lit. The staff said they are getting a mobile hoist and slings for pool hoist soon. Hoist into pool was new and staff were very nice helping us with it. It was similar to a shower chair that went down into the water so we are pleased there will be an option to use slings instead.
One we saw in changing room was ok, see above
The staff today were lovely, really helpful and friendly. We went a few months ago to ask about access and the man on reception was not very helpful and said there wasn't any!?! So glad we took a chance and went back!
Anything else you wish to tell us?
You can get a leisure card for £13 a year that gives you half price swimming.
