Olympia Swimming Pools
Swimming is a brilliant sport to improve your fitness and flexibility without straining joints or muscles, plus you can make it as easy or energetic as you like. It is also great fun, and our range of swimming pools ensures that there is a place for the whole family to enjoy swimming in Dundee.
The Olympia is now home to one of Scotland’s newest leisure pools and is the number one destination for people looking to make a splash when visiting Dundee. The leisure pool includes a rapid river, wave pool and seated bubble beds. Younger children and families can look forward to splashing around in the toddler’s pool with smaller slides and fun interactive features.
Thrill seekers can try the 4 innovative flumes that exit into aqua catches, with the bravest daring to try the Cannonball with its 3.8m drop into the dive pool. The flumes have various features including 3D holograms, LED light effects and clear sections. As the only swimming pool in Scotland to have these exciting features, we recommend that you visit us in Dundee to try them all out.
50m Swimming Pool
Our 50m swimming pool has 6 lanes with a normal depth of 1.8m but is highly adaptable and can readily transform into 3 separate pool areas – dive pool, activity pool and 25m training pool – by using its moveable floor and walls.
The 25m Training Pool will be closed on the following dates due to Swimming Events:
- Saturday 15th March – 4.00pm – 5.30pm
- Saturday 22nd March – 4.00pm – 5.30pm
- Saturday 29th March – 4.00pm – 5.30pm
Public Lane Swimming
Lane swimming will be available in our 25m training pool for those looking for either a more relaxed recreational swim or for those looking for a more rigorous training workout.
The moveable floor in the main 50m swimming pool facilitates different pool depths and creates the diving pool. The diving boards will be open at programmed times and for diving classes. Please note, the 3m and 5m diving boards are not available when the cannonball flume is in operation, the timings of which are subject to change.
There is a Family friendly changing village in Olympia with lockers operating with a returnable £1.00 coin. If you don’t want to take a wet costume home with you, why not try our mini spinners which dry your costume in no time. Mini Spinners are located on the end aisles next to the hair dryers.
