Stratford Recreation Ground Paddling Pool

Stratford Recreation Ground Paddling Pool

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

The facility is now closed. With effect from Saturday 26th May 2018, the pool will be open at weekends and during Warwickshire County Council school holidays.

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

The address of this location is:

The Recreation Ground
Swans Nest Lane
Stratford-upon-Avon
CV37 7LS


Advice to keep you and your children safe

• This paddling pool is for the use of young children only.

• 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.

• Babies and children should not wear nappies in the pool but can wear a purpose made costume for swimming pool use.
