Cirencester Outdoor Swimming Pool

Details about the venue:

Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool. Built in 1869 this unique pool offers the chance to swim in natural spring water heated to an average 27°C (80°F). Located on the edge of Cirencester Park, there is a 28 metre main pool with slide, separate children’s paddling pool, sunbathing patio as well as hot and cold refreshments. 

We have been to the outdoor pool many times but over the last few years the pool has been renovated in many ways.  Below are the details of some of the renovation projects. 

Phase 1:  They now have a new main building, with ladies, gents and disability changing rooms, toilets and showers, function room (for hire), plant room, chemical stores and workshop.

Phase 2:  They have now concentrated several areas and they now have a new wider entrance to Riverside Walk enables families and pushchairs more room; a designated reception area and desk; new fencing alongside Riverside Walk was made bespoke to incorporate the storage of new pool covers; an extra entrance and exit with turnstile which will help the flow of people on busy days on and off the pool site; improved disabled access to the rear gate with ramp and handrail; new patio to Riverside Walk side of pool.
