This attraction is a fun-day out for the entire family, which offers a small pool just for swimming and a larger pool with a wave machine and lazy river.

Been demolished to make way for a new York City football stadium project that has subsequently been shelved ... ludicrous and inept decision making / dithering ...

Builders have been in and it's been knocked down so it should be off your site, the reason for knocking it down is that they are building a complex

I used to go there a lot when I was younger. Came pass and saw it is now closed so no point visiting there . It is a shame that no other swimming pool with slide and lazy river like waterworld nearby

We used to go here every week with my family, as a child the selection of things to do is impressive. A refurbishment would have kept this place going for a long time, but instead it's going to be demolished. What a shame. 28DL anyone?

This was a brilliant pool especially for the young children who aren't sure of water slides. It has sadly now closed - hence why my review isn't lengthy!!
