Children and Families

For information about the swimming pool in the Walled Garden, including swimming lessons for children, please click here.

Children aged 9 and over may use the Cedars Pool during Open Swim and Family Swim sessions. Younger children may use the pool during these sessions if they are able to swim a length (30m) unaided, which is in line with the Swim England Stage 4 Award.

To enable families with mixed ages and abilities enjoy a swim together, the Family Swim sessions from 3.00pm to 4.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays are designated as ‘All Age Family Swim’ sessions. These sessions are open to all ages, irrespective of swimming ability.

During school holidays, All Age Family Swim Sessions also take place between 3.00-4.30pm each Wednesday.

For children under 4 years old, the Crèche offers a range of activities that encourage children to learn through play, build their own self confidence and embrace their individuality.
