Play @ PaddlePod

We are more than just a swimming pool here at PaddlePod... Both our venues feature play areas for children under five years old, sensory play areas for babies aged 0-12 months, baby social groups, and activity rooms that host a range of children's classes.

Play areas

You'll find a cracking soft play area at PaddlePod Newcastle (Killingworth), which is perfectly designed for children aged 0-5 years old. We also have a toddler play area with loads of exciting and interactive wall toys.

PaddlePod North Tyneside (Shiremoor) features a smaller play area within the cafe - great for little ones to explore as you grab a cuppa and catch up with friends.


Sensory room

We have two brand-new sensory play areas within our venues - one at PaddlePod North Tyneside (Shiremoor), and another at PaddlePod Newcastle (Killingworth).

These sensory rooms are designed for children aged 0-12 months.
