The Parkside complex has three pools, gym and fitness studio:
The pools are managed by GLL in partnership with the council.
The main pool is used by a number of clubs and competitions, so there are times when it is closed to the public.
Parkside Pools is one of the most accessible leisure buildings in Cambridge.
The building is equipped with specialist changing and shower facilities. It also has specialist mobile and fixed hoist arrangements, along with hydraulically operated benches, to assist with transition from the toilets and showering facilities to the changing rooms.
Access to the main pool and diving pool is assisted by the provision of a manual hoist and sling. For hygiene reasons, please bring your own sling when you visit if possible.
Alternatively, access to the water can be made via wet chairs and other hoisting arrangements.
A thriving disabled swimming club exists at the pool, and there are swimming and health suite sessions for the over 50s.
