All you need to know – Luke's Place Hydrotherapy Pool

The Old Estates Office, Putteridge Park, Luton, LU2 8LD (please see directions below)


We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at Luke's Place Hydrotherapy Pool – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!


Location: Luke's Place Hydrotherapy Pool 


Parking: There is ample car parking space on the grounds as you come through the gates. Please ensure that you do not move any bollards to create more parking spaces as these are in place for a reason. If there is no-one parked in the disabled spaces, customers are able to use these while attending their lessons. There is no parking on the lane outside of the site or on the grass verge along the lane. 

Essential Information:

  • Arrive no more than 15 minutes before the class is due to start please.
  • Please do not bring pushchairs or car seats into the facilities.
  • Customers and spectators are requested to remove their shoes and leave them on the shoe rack before entering the changing rooms. 
  • There is no access to the venue before 9am.


Changing Rooms: 

This pool was purpose built to be a specialist Care and Respite home for young adults with learning difficulties so the facilities are not like most pools.

There is one open plan changing room which will be used for females and a large disabled toilet which will act as the male changing rooms. There is a shower available in the female changing facilities only. We also keep some changing mats at the poolside for you to change your little ones. We advise for customers to bring their own changing mats along to place on top of the ones provided for hygiene reasons.

Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks have exclusive use of the pool.


Technical information

  • Pool temperature: 34°C 
  • Depth: 1.2m
  • Maximum class ratios: 6 children/adult pairs:1 teacher

Access: Spectators can sit poolside on the chairs. Please be mindful that there is no barrier between the seating area and the pool so keep any other little ones with you at all times.

Directions: If coming from the A505, please follow the A505 all the way to the roundabout by the Shell petrol garage (please note your Sat Nav will try to take you through the university campus. There is no access through this route). When at the Shell petrol garage roundabout, take the 1st exit onto Ashcroft Road (if you are coming from the M1, you need to take the 3rd exit at the roundabout) and then take the first left onto Putteridge Road. Follow the road all the way to the end and you will come to white house ahead of you. Bear left and follow this road round. The pool will be on your right hand side after the 3rd road hump - look out for the Puddle Ducks A-Frame which will be located just by the turning for the car park.
