    The smaller toddler's pool with a minimum depth of 0.6m and maximum depth of 0.75m is a great spot for the really little ones.

    Both pools are fully shaded and have numerous seating options along with a shaded grass area next to the toddler pool.

    Lockers are available for hire from the kiosk allowing you to store your valuables safely while you enjoy the water.
