Outdoor pool makes a splash with swimmers
Swimmers are being urged to pick out their swimwear following news that West Oxfordshire District Council’s heated outdoor pool in Woodstock will open for the summer season this Saturday (April 14).
As well as the 25-metre pool, there is a separate paddling pool for younger children.
Ben Border, West Oxfordshire Partnership Manager for Nexus Community, who run the pool on behalf of the District Council, said: “With the great weather and a sport filled summer I’m sure many people will want to get active.
“The pool is heated to 29 degrees, so it means we get lots of visitors whatever the weather and there is plenty of green space for people wanting to bring a picnic with them and making a day of it.”
The pool, in Shipton Road, Woodstock, is set in a grassed area. The deep end of the main pool has a diving board and a depth of 3.5m, so is an ideal place for diving enthusiasts.
The changing rooms have modern showers and there are disabled facilities.
The pool is also open for private hire and swimming lessons.
Entrance costs range from £2.50 (off-peak) and £3 (peak) for juniors to £4.15 (off-peak) and £5.75 (peak) for adults, with concessions, family and season tickets available. There is also free parking available.
The pool will remain open for the summer season until 2 September.
