The Gore swimming pool has about 10 inflatable water toys for children to enjoy these holidays and so far they have proved a popular drawcard.

Gore Multisport Complex lifeguard Henry Dickey said a lot of children came back to the pool just to play on the inflatables.

They are usually put up at the weekends but go up every day during the summer break, he said.

Mother Tarsha Dodds said she took her family to the pool for a couple of hours each day for the inflatables.

''The kids love it,'' she said.

The inflatables are put up between 1-5pm every day during the summer holidays.
