Cirencester Open Air Pool in 148th Year!

No reason not to enjoy the open air pool!

Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool opens for its 148th Year

Fingers crossed for a gloriously sunny summer in the Cotswolds this year as Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool gets ready to open its doors for its 2018 season on the 24th May.

The 28 metre pool is now reaching its 148th year and offers swimmers of all ages a chance to swim in natural spring water heated to 27°C. The facility also includes a tuck shop serving a number of hot and cold refreshments, a sunbathing patio area and a smaller paddling pool for children. 

It has been run by a community of lovely and enthusiastic volunteers for a number of years now and they have been working hard ready for the grand opening on the 24th May

This year will see the return of two of the open air pool’s most popular events, the 24 hour charity swim on the 1st - 2nd of September to raise money for the pool and Splash day, a big themed party with burgers and fun activities taking place thorough-out the day – keep an eye on the COASP website for the date.

The pool will also be hosting a Summer Solstice swim on the 21st June at 4:30 am until 6:30am for early risers and two night swims from 10pm to midnight on the 30th June and 4th August for night owls. 

There will be a weekly youth evening every Friday up to 21st July from 7 - 8:30pm for children aged 10 - 17 to enjoy a swim and a splash with their friends.

There will also be parent and toddler sessions available from 10am – 11am during term time including free tea and coffee.

Season tickets will be available to purchase from the pool for: 

Adults £85
Child / Students £50 
Concession £60
Family (2+2) £180
1A & 2C £150 / 1A & 1C £120
(3rd & extra child £30 each) 

Be sure to get yours early to make the most of your summer at the pool.

Thanks to our lovely heated spring water, swimming feels great no matter the weather!

The open air pool will be available for party bookings once again this year on Tuesdays, Thursdays (7 - 9pm) or on Saturday and Sunday (6 - 9pm). Fridays (7 -9pm) available during school holidays. Make sure to book early to get your first choice of date for that special event.
