Guests will be required to produce a valid Leisure card to gain access to the pool and leisure facilities, this will be given on arrival along with other welcome information. These passes are free of charge but must be shown each time gain access to the leisure facilities.

The Swimming pool is open daily 9am - 8pm. (7pm - 8pm is Adults only)

Prior to gym usage a PARQ needs to be completed.

The pool has a maximum occupancy of 85 people and therefore at times it will be necessary to operate a ‘one in one out’ policy.

The pool is open daily and runs a variety of different sessions throughout the year, these can vary depending on the seasons. For the latest swimming pool timetable download here.

Please be aware that it is the policy at Whitemead Forest Park that all children under 11 and non-swimmers under 15 must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times when in the pool and spa area. In addition to this strict supervision ratios are also in place for bathers.

  • All children from the age 0 – 3 years must be accompanied in the pool by a responsible adult on a ratio of 1 adult to 1 child.
  • All children aged 4 - 10 years must be accompanied in the pool at all times by a responsible adult on a ratio of 1 adult to 2 children.

Sauna and steam-room use is for ages 16 and over only, and the spas for those aged eight and above. You and your children use the pool facilities at your own risk. Lifeguards are in attendance at the pool for safety reasons; they are not responsible for the supervision of any children, who remain the responsibility of their parent/guardian at all times.

Temporary Closure of Spa Pools

There is currently is a national shortage of chlorine. At Whitemead we have managed to secure a good stock of chlorine to keep the pool operating fully however the type of chlorine that we have been able to purchase is unsuitable for use in our spa pools and therefore we are unable to open these for the foreseeable future.

We are doing our best to obtain the appropriate chlorine and have orders placed with a number of suppliers.

We appreciate your understanding with this and assure you we are doing what we can to get these back fully operational as soon as possible.
