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, picnics welcome. There are no sessions and many families and friends stay all day.
This is now the UK’s oldest open-air pool, having been in continual use every summer since 1869. Although there are one or two other pools slightly older, they have not always remained open, in fact 90% of all the UK’s pools have been demolished in the last 40 years. It has been run by volunteers since 1973 and is now a registered charity.
