I visited Dimensions Leisure Centre in Burslem for a swim a few weeks ago with a friend and her little girl and absolutely loved it. The pool was fantastic and I can't believe there are no photos on the website that do it any justice.
I haven't been able to swim since having laser eye surgery but seen as I have a few days off next weekend, I think we should visit as a family. Mark is a real water baby and hope Luke follows in his footsteps, although we did have the water wobbles a few months ago.

Here are more details about it from the site:-
Our modern, light and friendly centre offers a fantasy themed leisure pool with ‘dragon slide’, hot spa pools, ‘water rapids’ and a tropical beach bar.

On dry land, Dimensions also includes a sports hall, outdoor synthetic football pitches and access to Dimensions Health and Fitness Club. We also have a spinning studio and licensed café bar.

We offer a wide and varied range of leisure services for all the family:

* Leisure swim... A tropical water paradise with "Dino", our 65 metre dragon slide, rapids, fountains, spas, whirlpool, cascade pools and lots more fun for everyone.
* Family swim... A unique aqua leisure experience designed for families, with children in the water accompanied by adults.
* Swimming lessons
* Aquatots... A wonderful way for parents to introduce their toddlers to water, gain confidence and at the same time have fun with toys and floats. (Up to age of 6 years only).
* Aqua fit... A super energetic way to improve fitness in a structured class in water to music.
* Children's birthday parties
* Football
