  • We check for broken glass three times a day.
  • We test chlorine levels three times a day, adjusting when necessary.
  • We clear litter from the site and empty the litter bins on a daily basis.

Advice to Keep You and Your Children Safe

  • The paddling pool is for the use of young children only.
  • Babies and children should not wear nappies in the paddling pool, but can wear a purpose-made costume for swimming pool use.
  • All children inside the paddling pool enclosure must be accompanied by a responsible person who is in charge of the child at all times.
  • Take care: paddling pools can be hazardous. Water presents a risk of drowning and injuries can occur from hitting the hard surround.
  • Children should only be allowed to enter the pool area when the gate is open. When the gate is closed, access is not permitted.
