The area has an air of neglect about it. The 'pool' is a stagnant body of murky water which had a slick of oily stuff on it & algae just under the surface. It certainly didn't look like a place to swim...in fact I would...More

This pool has been neglected for what it seems ages. I was scared to breathe around it yet alone even consider taking a dip. Bring your decontamination suits if you plan to swim. Remember the aeroguard or Rid as it is a breeding ground for...More

Not easy to find but it is nice and quiet. The name is somewhat deceptive as you wouldn't come here thinking that you'll take a quick dip to cool off as the water is quite murky and there are signs advising against swimming here.

It wasn't easy to find - we couldn't see any signs to it on the main road. We headed down Sixth Street (opposite Rubens) and towards the bottom of the street we found signs leading to the pool. The pool is a dammed up part...More
