Swimming at Cinderford

Freedom Leisure Cinderford has some superb swimming facilities, suitable for both serious swimmers and the whole family to enjoy!


Swimming is a great activity for the whole family to participate in together. Have fun splashing around and practising the life skill of swimming. Cool down on hot days and enjoy a fun indoor activity in the cold wet months of the year. The whole family will enjoy the time spent together in the pool.


Swimming is a great form of exercise for the whole body. The swimming pool provides a great environment for warming up or cooling down after a gym workout but is also a very effective exercise in its own right. The water provides additional resistance for your muscle groups to work against and supports some of your body weight reducing the strain on your joints.


Unwind after a busy day with a relaxing swim. Wash away all the stress of the day in the 25m pool during adult swim sessions.
