There aren't very many good public swimming pools round our way so in a fit of enthusiasm one day last summer we thought we'd take our two kids (then aged 4 and 2) to Ponds Forge for some swimming.
Ponds Forge is very close the Sheffield's main railway station, which is very convenient for families used to travelling by train like ourselves.
The pool didn't have quite as many features as we would have hoped for, but it was still good, and it kept the kids occupied for almost an hour in the water. The facilities were modern and pleasant, bright and airy; and the water was agreeably warm too.
All in all we thought it was a great facility, although just a little too far out of our way for us to consider using on anything other than a very occasional basis.
