Outdoor pools opening marks the start of summer

18 May 2012

Hitchin and Letchworth outdoor pools are officially opening their doors for summer this year on Saturday 26 May. This means that the outdoor pools will be open at the start of Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend for everyone to enjoy.

Both outdoor pools are heated and benefit from having smaller heated pools for toddlers and younger children, grassed picnic areas for sunbathing and cafés that provide refreshments and snacks. A range of concessions are also available for families, multi-swim tickets and swim memberships. Both pools can be hired for private functions and pool parties.

Hitchin outdoor pool will be open seven days a week from 8am to 6.30pm.  Letchworth pool will be opening from 7am to 6.30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and will open at the slightly later time of 8am to 6.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  At weekends the pool will be open from 8.30am until 6.00pm. Both pools will stay open until Sunday 9 September.

Cllr Ian Knighton, NHDC’s portfolio holder for leisure said: “We hope that the severe wet weather we have been experiencing during springtime lets up enough throughout the summer so that as many people as possible make use of the outdoor pool facilities.

“We are lucky to have two 50 metre outdoor pools in the area and we are proud to be able to provide people of all ages with the opportunity to use this great service.”
