Woodstock pool reopens for summer
Woodstock's outdoor heated swimming pool has reopened for summer.
With soaring temperatures in 2013, there were a record-breaking 15,000 visitors to the pool last summer and staff are looking forward to another busy season ahead.
The pool is a fantastic facility, with a 25m main pool, heated to a comfortable 29 degrees. With a depth of 3.5m it is ideal for diving enthusiasts and there is a separate paddling pool for younger children.
Cllr Richard Langridge, Cabinet Member responsible for leisure, said: “With its large grassed area and café, the pool is suitable for families and makes for a great day out. Although last summer was exceptionally busy thanks to the hot weather, both pools are heated and suitable for all weather.
“We’re pleased to offer leisure facilities like this in District and are looking forward to another busy, fun-packed summer. Hopefully we’ll have some fantastic weather too!”
The pool is owned by our Council and run by leisure contractor Better. It is available for private hire and swimming lessons and will be open until September.
Timetable and cost information will be available on the Better website. Alternatively, call 01993 811785.
