We are pleased to announce the start of our refurbishment programme for Park Swim. Whilst we hope all members understand there will inevitably be some minor disruption to the pool over the coming weeks...we cannot wait to show you what we have achieved in our goal to give ALL of our members and guests the best possible facilities we can whilst being a leading health and fitness centre for Maldon. During this time we are happy for all memberships which includes swim/spa to be expanded for enjoyment across all our facilities at the club.

We expect the pool to reopen Monday 17th January 2022.

Please keep an eye on our social media accounts @parkdrivehealthclub for immediate updates.

Due to the success of our lane booking system we have decided to continue on with this process. Members are able to book online or call the club on 01621 770836 to book their preferred time and lane up to 2 weeks in advance. The lane booking system will be in place for both the morning and afternoon swim sessions during weekdays with free family swim sessions available lunchtimes and at the weekends.

We look forward to seeing you all soon.



The pool is 15.75 metres long by 7.5 metres wide and has a constant depth of 1.2m. We try to keep it heated to 30 degrees, winter and summer, making it ideal for serious swimmers as well as those not so confident.  


Why Exercise in Water?

  • More key muscles groups are used in swimming than in other sports
  • It improves flexibility, strength and circulation
  • It improves the ability to control and maintain a healthy weight
  • Injury is less likely due to the support of the water with no pounding or jarring the joints
  • Water is 800 times denser than air so it requires more effort to move through it
  • Being submerged creates a private environment to exercise in
  • Water can be as heavy as you want it to be making it an excellent piece of fitness equipment

Please note that the pool must be vacated at least 1 hour before the club closes each evening
