As a result of significant health and safety issues being identified, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council has been forced to close Hawthorn Swimming Pool to the public with immediate effect.

For more information view the Hawthorn swimming pool press release |

HawthornSwimming Pool is a large pool which hosts public swimming, along with organised swimming classes and groups such as Aqua Babies and Over 50s. There is also a sauna and steam room. 

Hawthorn Pool is also a very popular venue for birthday party bookings which are held in the pool with a large inflatable and then afterwards in the viewing gallery which runs alongside the pool and offers a great view for all the parents not taking the plunge!. It is advised that party bookings are made well in advance.
