As well as more than 120 indoor pools, Everyone Active also operates a number of outdoor swimming pools and lidos. These are perfect for fun family days out during the school holidays, making the most of the best that the British weather has to offer and, especially this year, could be the closest thing we get to going abroad for a while.
We have six outdoor swimming pool facilities operating currently, located all over the country, each of which offers something slightly different. Some are outdoor pools attached to larger leisure centres which also feature indoor pools. Others, meanwhile, are standalone outdoor swimming pools and lidos, some of which are located right next to the sea, for that authentic seaside, holiday feel.
Our outdoor swimming pools are open between May and September each year.
Everyone Active’s Outdoor Swimming Pools
Our outdoor swimming pools and lidos offer something for everyone and are perfect for the whole family. While our indoor pools are more famed for swimming lessons and lane swimming sessions, as well as fun swimming, the outdoor pools also are almost completely focused on ensuring you and your family have as much fun in the water as possible.
Stratford Park Leisure Centre features a superb outdoor swimming pool. It’s the perfect place for the whole family to enjoy during the summer months; especially during the school holidays. Kids can splash around in the pool, while parents soak up the rays (as long as the weather behaves) around the edge. What better way to while away those long spring and summer days?
Hemel Hempstead boasts two wonderful outdoor swimming pools. There’s the 25m main pool where kids and the whole family can play games and swim around enjoying themselves, while there’s also the kid’s paddling pool, which features fountains for children to play in. If this all gets a little too exhausting, you can always relax round the edge of the pool too. Just don’t forget the shades and the sun cream!
There are two outdoor swimming pools at Ashby Leisure Centre & Lido – a 25m main pool and a smaller pool for younger children to get more confident in the water. They’re both fantastic fun, however, and provide fantastic fun for the whole family. Whether you want to swim, have fun the water or lounge by the pool, Ashby Lido is perfect for you!
