About the Hydrotherapy pool

The pool offers a unique environment for people who require supported exercise as part of a rehabilitation programme. Hydrotherapy has healing and recuperative properties due to thermal and mechanical effects.

  • Water temperature is maintained at 34 to 35 degrees
  • 9.5 x 5 metre deck level pool accessible to disabled users
  • State of the art hoists for easy access to the pool
  • Hydro sessions are for people with special needs or rehab only
  • Swimming is not permitted
  • All public sessions are fully supervised by a qualified lifeguard, but do not have a physiotherapist in attendance
