We’re redeveloping Hilsea Lido as part of the Hilsea Lines project in the north of the city to encourage residents and visitors to visit the area.
Over the Spring and Summer of 2022, we consulted with over 2,000 people in the local community to ask their opinions on improvements to the lido.
Using residents’ top results, we’ve put together eight pledges for Hilsea Lido, which are:
- Open the lido more often for everyone to enjoy
- Explore the potential of heating at least part of the pool
- Include a food and drink facility
- Provide play equipment and a diverse range of activities and events
- Make the lido welcoming and accessible to everyone
- Improve shower, toilet and changing facilities
- Create a well-maintained, attractive, and fun facility
- To make the lido as affordable as possible
The pledges have been given to our contractors, Mace and Space-Place, to incorporate within the design plans for the Hilsea Lido and surrounding area, where possible.
