Sandford Parks Lido
Sandford Parks Lido in the spa town of Cheltenham is an open air recreational facility. Primarily a swimming venue, it also hosts open-air theatre, music and cinema screenings.
Set within four acres of landscaped gardens, Sandford Parks Lido is a heated outdoor swimming resort providing a great day out for all the family. The Lido is a young swimmer’s paradise with slides, a children’s pool and a paddling pool for the smallest swimmers. There is also a 50-metre main pool, which is an ideal place for the more serious swimmer to train with three lanes reserved most days.
The Lido is open to the general public between April and October on payment of an admission fee.
For those wanting to improve their skills in the pool, the Lido offers one-to-one swimming tuition for all levels, an intensive swim school during the summer holidays, lifeguard training, water polo, 30-minute Swimfit sessions and hour-long underwater cross training.
The cafe is in the park and open 7 days a week between April and October. Please note, on very quiet days, or in the event of bad weather it may close early. Reception will inform swimmers on entry to the Lido if this is the case.
