Welcome to Edinburgh's only public 50 metre pool...and so much more. The ‘Commie Pool’ reopened in 2012, following extensive refurbishment which saw the building stripped back to its original shell and rebuilt retaining all of the listed features, revitalising this magnificent light and airy venue. A top notch gym, three fitness studios and three pools mean there's is plenty of choice in terms of getting active. From a casual dip in the pool to a fast paced fitness class or Clambers softplay, we have plenty of fun activities for all the family to enjoy as part of a healthy, active lifestyle.
