Outdoor lido opens at Pools on the Park

A popular summer destination for families is now open for summer 2017.

As the weather has now started to improve Richmond Council have brought forward the annual opening of the outdoor lido at Pools on the Park to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the Sports Centre being brought under the management of Richmond Council.

Since last year, Richmond Council has had the opportunity to make improvements to the centre, including:

  • All current and future Feel Good Fitness Gold Members will have access to the Spa facilities at Pools on the Park
  • Redesign and provision of the fitness centre facilities
  • Competitive membership options
  • Improvements to the outdoor pool

Previous users can also now take advantage of the ‘Feel Good Fitness’ membership, giving members access to two other swimming pools, four gyms and over 200 fitness classes across the borough.

Richmond Council’s Cabinet Member for Sport, Cllr Meena Bond, said:

“The sun has started to come out and it does feel like it is finally getting a litter warmer. We know that many swimmers are keen to start using the outdoor pool and enjoying an early morning brisk swim.

“Over the past twelve months, Pools on the Park has seen a huge number of improvements and we aren’t finished yet! I would encourage residents to come along to the centre, have a dip in one of the pools and sign up to Feel Good Fitness.

“Not only will you benefit from the considerable improvements Richmond Council has made to the centre – you’ll have membership to the Council’s five fitness and leisure centres too.”
