Dundee is now home to one of Scotland’s newest leisure pools and The Olympia is the number one destination for people looking to make a splash when visiting Dundee.

The leisure pool includes a rapid river, wave pool and seated bubble beds, while younger children and families can look forward to splashing around in the toddler’s pool with smaller slides and fun interactive features.
