Open Water Swimming

Whether you are new to open water swimming, a casual swimmer or a pro, Spring Lakes is the perfect place for you. Come down and take a dip in our beautifully clear, spring fed water. Swim into lake 2 during the warmer months and float away from everyday stress. Socialise with our swimming family and make some new friends for life whilst enjoying a hot drink and a slice of cake in our Waters Edge cafe.

We aim to offer open water swimming all year round at more flexible times for all swimmers. A lifeguard will always be on hand whilst you swim.

Please join our Spring Lakes Open Water Swimmers Facebook Page for daily water temperature updates.
