Swimming Pool Recall
But they are cleverer than I thought! They have managed to make it into a car park whilst still retaining the essence of the original pool! Look!
People can wander around the car park while thinking of their memories of happy swimming in the 1960s and 1970s.
In fact, it's along the same lines of Simon Pope's Gallery Space Recall exhibition in Cardiff, where you are invited to walk round an empty art gallery and conjure up your memories of other galleries you have been to.
"On a sunny Sunday morning in Roundhay Park you are invited to wander round the car park and revisit your physical, sensual, spiritual and kinaesthetic memories of the open-air swimming pool experience. To gain the deepest meaning from your visit, please remove your shoes."

With all the council's fuss about Health and Safety, you would think they could get a bloody car park right, wouldn't you? It's only been open a short while and already it lacks that - well - flatness, that lackofpotholeness, so crucial to a car park.
Good job Leeds City Council aren't in charge of anything really important, such as educat - - Oh dear.
