Drop-In Swimming

Drop-in swimming

Include swimming in your active routine by enjoying a zero-depth entry into a heated leisure pool with three lap lanes, a lazy river, and play features.

No better way to relieve some stress than by relaxing in the two-tier spa.

Mornings are reserved for lap swimming, while the rest of the day is available for open swim.
