For the youngest children there is a separate children's section and there are activity pools for fitness swimming and diving.

The water in the adventure pool is at a comfortable temperature of 30ºC and the pools are 0-1.4 metres deep. The adventure pool also has a children's section with a mini-slide, splashing areas, floating toys and an umbrella. It’s noticeable here that the theme is “Halmstad”, with the salmon figures squirting water and the “Nissan” flowing into the large pool.

Relaxation and diving

If you need a break from all the playing and fun, take a moment to relax in the 37ºC water in the whirlpool. If you’re here on a Thursday evening, you can enjoy adults’ evening swimming. If you're hungry for a bit more adventure, try springboard diving from one metre or dive from the high board three metres up. You’ll land in 30ºC water, in a 3.8-metre-deep pool.

Children under the age of 12 can swim and play at the baths with an adult capable of swimming. Children of 12 years old and over who can swim are welcome to visit the Arena Bath without adult accompaniment. All visitors must pay an entrance fee, even if not swimming.
