Date set for Woodstock Pool opening
Woodstock’s heated outdoor pool opens for the summer season on Saturday 20 April.
In addition to the main 25 metre swimming pool, it has a separate paddling pool for younger children.
Robert Wood, West Oxfordshire Partnership Manager for GLL Better, which runs the pool on behalf of the District Council, said: “The pool is heated to a pleasant 29 degrees, so it means we get lots of visitors whatever the weather and have thousands of people coming along to swim or make the most of the surroundings every year.”
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. It 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.
The pool, which is owned by West Oxfordshire District Council, will remain open for the summer season and close in September.
