Take a plunge at Woodstock pool
10:35am Friday 13th April 2012 in Entertainment
SWIMMERS are being invited to dig out their swimwear for the weekend – with Woodstock’s heated outdoor pool opening for the season on Saturday.
The West Oxfordshire District Council-owned pool in Shipton Road is set in a grassed area and the deep end has a diving board and a depth of 3.5m.
As well as the 25-metre pool, there is a separate paddling pool for younger children.
Ben Border, West Oxfordshire partnership manager for Nexus Community, which runs the pool on behalf of the council, said: “With a sport-filled summer I’m sure many people will want to get active.
“The pool is heated to 29 degrees, so it means we get lots of visitors whatever the weather, and there is plenty of green space for people wanting to bring a picnic with them to make a day of it.”
Entrance is £2.50 (off-peak) and £3 (peak) for children, and £4.15 (off-peak) and £5.75 (peak) for adults.
Concessionary, family and season tickets are also available.
