Experience the joy of an outdoor pool in the sun at Riverside

Released on May 22, 2016

This summer why not go for go for a dip in the glorious outdoors as Riverside Park and Pools opens its doors for the new season. 

The heated outdoor pool is pen between 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 6pm at weekends, with the popular Jubilee Splash Park also available for younger children to enjoy. 

Riverside, which is located on the bank of the River Thames next to Wallingford Bridge on the Crowmarsh Gifford side of the river, is the perfect place to spend a lazy summer day.  The site features a 23 metre heated outdoor pool, changing rooms and refreshments.

A swim costs just £4.25 for adults, £2.85 for junior/seniors or £13.40 for a family swim (two adults and two children).  Regular swimmers are also able to take advantage of a season pass for £69 for adults and just £34 for juniors and seniors.

Weather permitting the heated outdoor pool will remain in operation until Sunday 11 September*, while the campsite and interactive water feature are open until Sunday 2 October. 

Cllr Anna Badcock, Cabinet Member for Leisure at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “Riverside is a great place to spend a long sunny day, or even as a base for a short break.  We look forward to seeing as many swimmers take advantage of the outdoor pool throughout the summer, and I’m sure that Jubilee Splash Park will remain a major draw for younger children too.”
