Splash Closure and Pool Refurb

Splash will be closed from Monday the 20th June, 2016 for a full pool refurbishment. This will include the installation of a new pool liner, new pool filter media, alterations to the covers and installation of new UV filters.  The works are planned to take a week and we will therefore re-open on Monday the 27th June.

There will be staff on duty for the duration of the closure so if you have any queries or enquiries please do give us a call on  01254 679828.  Or if you’re looking for some new summer swimwear, Havaianas or toys and games for the pool for your summer break come in and see us.  (you can even have a nosey at how the refurb is progressing).

We look forward to seeing you all in the shiny new pool from the 27th.

Thinking of having a pool party? Come to the Hub!


Are you organising a children’s party? Perhaps your child has a birthday coming up, or you just want to do something to keep them and their friends entertained over the summer. Why not thrill them with a pool party? If you’re looking for a fantastic venue to hold pool parties in Blackburn, then look no further than the Hub. We’ve got everything you need, including inflatables!

The Hub is a family-friendly communal space, equipped with a wide variety of services and amenities including – most importantly – an amply-sized swimming pool where kids and grown-ups alike can enjoy swimming or paddling.

With the hot summer weather keeping us all warm, pool parties are the perfect way for kids to have fun and cool off at the same time. As all parents know, children are very energetic. Pool parties let them splash around and burn off some of that exuberant energy without getting too hot and tired in the summer heat!

Pool parties are great for birthdays

Kids love birthday parties that are unique and exciting: the novelty of having a party in a swimming pool is certain to delight any child, from toddlers to preteens!

Of course, it’s not just children who love to stretch their swimming muscles. If you organise a pool party, you’ll probably find yourself enjoying it just as much as the kids! Pool parties allow you to get involved with the fun, too.

Here at the Hub, our facilities are second-to-none. Our pool is designed to provide an environment that’s safe, secure and thoroughly enjoyable. Whatever size pool party you want to organise, you’ll find that our first-rate pool and amenities will be able to accommodate you.

After all, pool parties are one of the best ways to let loose on a hot summer’s day, and we want the experience to be as positive as possible. We look forward to seeing you by the pool!

Swimming Pool Parties


If you’re a parent then you’ll understand the stress and difficulties that come with organising a children’s birthday party.

But here at The Hub Riverside we have it all covered so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your child’s birthday just as much as them!

We host swimming pool parties that are perfect for children of all age groups at our outstanding Splash facilities.

After a fun splash and swim in the pool the celebrations continue, you and the kids can enjoy a bite to eat in our modern party room. Depending on your requirements we can provide a hot or cold buffet.

With the food and entertainment taken care of all you need to do is organise a cake and party bags! To the kids, they’re probably the two most important things, so no pressure!
