Work on Abingdon’s outdoor pool has started, and weather permitting, the pool will re-open for the 2018 summer season.
The paddling pool and main pool will be combined, and easy access to the pool provided by creating a ‘beach’ area.
The changing areas will also have a major revamp, and accessibility improved. A rubber surface will be laid around the pool to protect feet. Lights and heating will use energy-efficient equipment to reduce maintenance and operating costs.
Thanks to the VWHDC (Vale of White Horse District Council) for saving the pool for the next generation and beyond. Also thanks to the Friends of the outdoor pool for their campaign to keep the pool.
