Inflatable fun at Norwood Pool on Sundays
Try out your skills and beat the clock on the shiny new inflatable obstacle course at the Norwood Swimming Centre.
The inflatable obstacle course will be a permanent feature every Sunday between 12.30pm and 3.30pm, for the remainder of the 2017-2018 Season. Patrons will also be able to tackle the obstacle course every Saturday when the forecast temperature is 30 degrees or above.
Standard entry fees will apply and weather conditions may affect availability. See admission costs here
Please note that children must pass a 25 metre swimming test to be able to go on the obstacle course ie they need to be able to swim confidently over the length of the pool. This is because the inflatable is in the deep end of the pool and they need to be able to easily swim from the end of the course to the edge of the pool to exit. This is the same procedure as the inflatables at the aquatic centres.
Once they have passed the swimming test they’ll be given a wrist band to show they are allowed on the obstacle. It’s one person at a time so there may be line-ups but you can go on as many times as you like.
Don’t know much about Norwood Swimming Centre? Well, it’s a bit of a secret destination – it’s not as fancy as some of its bigger cousins and has sometimes been forgotten or some people don’t know about it. We have always loved that it’s not as busy as some.
The toddler pool is completely shaded and its proximity to the big pool means that it’s easier to supervise if you have kids of different ages. In fact because it’s only the two pools side by side it’s generally easier to supervise. There’s lots of grass and shady trees, plus on a hot day, by around 4pm the tall trees offer shade across most of the pool then too.
They have gas bbqs available (that are kept inside the shed). These can be used for free – just ask one of the lifeguards and they can help you get it out. Perfect for a sausage sizzle dinner (which we enjoyed doing on Saturday actually).
Sadly the old diving board which was very popular has been removed, but the kids still enjoy jumping off the blocks in the deep end (which is 2.7 metres deep).
Norwood Swimming Centre’s 2017-18 season closes on Sunday 8 April 2018.
