Congleton Paddling Pool

Provisional Opening Date…

As government guidelines stand, the paddling pool could open on 21st June 2021, as long as no restrictions are in place. Further updates will be issued on this website and on the Town Council Facebook page.

Congleton’s Paddling Pool has been a firm favourite with young children since the 1930s!  It is managed by Congleton Town Council and can be found in Park Road, CW12 1DP next to the Daneside Theatre. The Paddling  Pool is open seven days a week from 10am – 6pm (unless very wet or cold)  from the Saturday before the late May Bank Holiday- 25th May until the second Sunday in September- 8th September. Congleton Town Council believes the paddling pool is a key attraction for the town and continues to invest in the site. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

The Paddling Pool is a free facility run by Congleton Town Council for the benefit of local people. 

**Please note in exceptionally hot weather the pool and surrounding area can become very over crowded. If numbers exceed 300, a one in one out policy will be adopted. If you are driving to use this facility please be aware that there is only residents parking available, so please use the Town Centre car-parks, several of which are located very near by. Visitors are asked to respect the residents of Park Road and park in one of the town centre car-parks. Disabled visitors are asked to contact the Town Council Office (01260 270350 Option 1) for details of alternative parking.

A Paddling Pool Attendant will be on duty at all times and should be contacted if you need the key for the toliet, access to the first aid box or general advice. All children must be accompanied by an adult. The facility is designed for children aged 11 and under.

In 2008 the Town Council invested around £70,000 to improve the facility – this included new safety surfacing around the pool, the pool being repointed and painted, a new toilet facility connected to the main sewer (no more portaloos!) and improvements to the filtration plant.

All litter should be put in the bins provided and children should not take food or drink into the water as this can cause a problem with the filters.
