    Indoor pool suitable for babies

    Hi all, I'm interested in finding an indoor pool that's suitable for taking my 7month old - I'd like it to be indoor so I can continue to use it throughout the winter.
    I've seen a few places on the Internet but its not clear if they are suitable for babies or if they are really only for lap swimmers.
    I'd be most interested if anyone has any recommendations! I'm in midlevels but happy to travel.
    Thx! Clare

    don't think there are many indoor pools in hong kong. there are a few, but as far as i know they are all attached to the expensive clubs...

    There is a great public indoor pool at the sun yat sen memorial park in sai ying pun which is not far from the mid-levels. The sports centre there has great facilities. There is an Olympic size pool & a separate smaller one for children. Alternatively the SCAA (South China Athletic Association) in causeway bay has an indoor olympic size pool & smaller training pool suitable for children as well. Membership is only $100/yr.

    YMCA in Tsim Sha Tsui has an indoor baby pool. They do baby swimming classes as well.

    Click on individual locations to see which ones offer indoor - there are a few in there.

    I took my baby swimming at sun yat sen today - was great. Water somewhat cooler than pools for babies in the uk but he seemed fine. Great facilities inc family changing rooms. It's busy (and probably particularly so on a stormy day during school holidays) but a good spot and I'll be going back!
