Hilsea Jubilee Splash PoolLast updated: 03 May 2013 10:42 UK
THE SPLASHPOOL WILL RE-OPEN FOR THE SUMMER SEASON ON SATURDAY 25th MAY 2013
The brand new splashpool at Hilsea Lido opened on Friday 1 June 2012.
The design is based on the successful Southsea splashpool that opened back in 2010, and has proved to be very popular with young children. It has been created for children of eight years or under, with an innovative new design and layout.
Hilsea Jubilee splashpool boasts two shallow water pools no deeper than five inches, play features, rubber safety surfacing, new toilets and baby change facilities, seats and picnic tables.
The scheme cost £332,000 and will be run by Hilsea Lido Pool for the People Trust, whose aim it was to bring the Lido back into use.
The pool was closed due to poor weather which badly damaged the facility, and it was decided that the most cost effective option would be to replace the pool with this exciting new design.
Weather permitting the splashpool is open every day from 11am until 6pm from Saturday 25th May through to the end of the summer school holidays, free admission.
