A favourite of families for many years, this is all that’s left of York Waterworld.
The iconic building, with its wave-shaped roof and outdoor chutes, has been reduced to rubble.
The fun pool closed last November, as part of the plan to create the York Community Stadium.
That project includes a 25-metre, six-lane swimming pool with a separate teaching and fun pool, although without the chutes or “lazy river” which made Waterworld so popular.
A lot of families are disappointed to see it go. This comment on Facebook is typical of the feeling of many:
I only hope the new pool is as much fun.
