Fun pool with water shoots and wave machine.

Bristol would benefit from and indoor fun swimming pool with shoots,wave machine and palm trees the somewhere people can spend the day. They have one at centre parks people would come from all over the West Country for a fun pool.

Why the contribution is important

There is nowhere like this within 30 miles of bristol I think they have an old one at Swindon.

    This is not something the council could afford as we're facing £90 million worth of cuts over the next three years. Also, most public swimming pools need a subsidy to keep them going, including all existing public swimming pools in Bristol.

    Any idea how it could be funded? If I remember correctly, Swindon Borough Council struggled with the costs of the Oasis Centre, although there are refurbishment plans involving a private developer.

    Perhaps this sort of thing can only be provided by the private sector e.g. Bluestone Wales and Centre Parcs with the current financial difficulties the country faces...........

    This is something they should have done when they built new pools a few years ago. We used to go to the Splash in Bridgwater, but that's closed now.
    The importance of this is it gets kids (and others!) exercising in a way that regular swimming pools don't.

    Cardiff has an excellent leisure pool, and I believe there is something in Newport. A great way of encouraging youngsters to take part in physical activity (and their parents!) which would also bring visitors to the city from miles around. We have a number of good but boring swimming pools which meet the needs of the swimming clubs but not the casual visitors.
