Stratford Recreation Ground Paddling Pool

Stratford Recreation Ground Paddling Pool

A free-to-use facility for young children to enjoy.

The paddling pool is now closed and will reopen on Saturday 4th May 2019 (weather permitting). Please check this page or Stratford-on-Avon District Council social media for any updates.

The facility is open at weekdays, during Warwickshire County Council school holidays, and during periods of hot weather.

The paddling pool may be drained for cleaning or repair - a process that may take up to six hours, so please be mindful of this if you are planning a visit.

There is a strict monitoring regime at this paddling pool:

  • 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

  • This 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.
