Congleton Paddling Pool Opens for Summer 2019

The Spring Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May sees Congleton Paddling Pool open for the Summer Season. The much loved paddling pool on Park Road will open on Saturday 25th May from 10am-6pm and remain open, weather permitting, every day until Sunday 8th September.

The paddling pool is a free facility run and managed by Congleton Town Council for the benefit of local people. The facility is designed for children aged 11 years and under and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

A paddling pool attendant will be on duty at all times and should be contacted if a key is needed to access the toilet or first aid box, or for any concerns should they arise. For safety reasons, users are asked not to take food and drink into the water and to make sure that all litter is put in the bins, as this can cause problems with the filters. Bikes, dogs, glass, smoking, vaping and alcohol are not allowed at the pool vicinity.

If you are driving to the facility, users are reminded to be respectful of local residents and to remember that Daneside Theatre car park is a private car park and cannot be used for the pool. Town Centre car parks are just a short walk from the pool and park.

In 2018 a new 300 person limit was applied to the paddling pool, which will be carried through into 2019. This is for the health, safety and comfort of users. This means that on exceptionally hot summer days, a one in, one out policy may be adopted to control numbers.

Town Hall Manager at Congleton Town Council, Mark Worthington said “The Paddling Pool is a great facility and we hope that the 2019 summer season will be just as successful and enjoyed by many. We ask all users to remain respectful of the 300 limit rule and other users of the pool, as well as the residents and businesses in the surrounding area.”
