Watford Leisure Centre Central
The new pools
By Beverley Small
We were all very sad to see the old Watford Central Baths pulled down, especially me as a regular swimmer, but it was very exciting to watch the new building go up. I work at the Library so I had a regular view of the progress.
The new pool although smaller has better changing rooms and the building is impressive to look at. You can see the learner pool now and it is lovely to watch the children having fun. There is also much more natural light.
We miss the old pool
Some of us still miss the old pool though. You could have a good long swim there and you were not overlooked. And it was part of the history of Watford.
