Stoke Park paddling pool re-opens in time for half-term

Residents can make a splash this half-term after the fantastic Paddling Pool in our award-winning Stoke Park reopened yesterday.

Lead Councillor for Environment, Cllr James Steel says: 

"We know how much families have missed visiting our Paddling Pool with their children and we are so pleased that we have reopened it in time for half-term and hopefully some better weather. Our Paddling Pool is full of fond memories for residents across our borough going back generations and we look forward to making new ones this year. 

"To keep all of our visitors safe we are asking everyone to only stay for up to one hour, continue to follow government guidance and be kind and considerate to one another. If you arrive and it's busy, please come back later. Please make sure that you supervise your children to maintain hygiene and social distancing measures. The public toilets are open in front of the play area." 

Cllr Steel adds: "Stoke Park is full of wonderful things for the whole family to enjoy. We have a children's playground which includes a helter skelter, a boating lake, a Japanese-style garden, multiple sports pitches and plenty of space for picnics. Our 18-hole mini golf course, which has been open at weekends throughout May, will reopen daily during half-term from Saturday 29 May to Sunday 6 June from 10am-4.30pm." 

The Stoke Park Paddling Pool originally opened in 1935, to commemorate King George V's silver jubilee, before being refurbished in 2016.
