NEW Paddle & Play Thursdays 12pm-2pm

New Paddle & Play session with the ACE Centre starts 16th May 2019!

A special two-hour session open to all adults with children under 5, and all under 5s go free!

Parents, carers, grandparents are all welcome to come along (standard admission charges apply).

There will be water play in the toddler pool and the main pool, with lots of toys and floats, and there will be an emphasis on learning water confidence both for the children and adults. 

Adults can roll up their trousers and sit on the side of the toddler pool, or bring their swim things and get into the main pool with the kids. We do allow beach shorts, T shirts, rash vests and wetsuits in the pool, so if you don’t want to wear a swim suit there are other options. We also have a small supply of swimming things to borrow, along with a variety of buoyancy aids, so, if you think you don’t have everything you need, come along anyway, and see how we can help.

There will be a dedicated helper from The Lido who can be in the water with any families who would like extra help and support with swimming and playing in the water, with the emphasis on having fun and being safe. There will also be poolside toys and games on the lawn. 

The café will be open from 12pm serving child-friendly portions, hot and cold drinks, ice creams and snacks, and there will be water freely available to drink.

Please note The Lido’s rule that all children under 8 must be supervised closely in the water by a parent or carer, so do come prepared to get wet!
