-------------*Please note the site is currently shut* ----------------- Dear all members of the Lido community, It is with huge regret and with a very heavy heart that the Trustees have made the decision to delay the opening of Sandford Parks Lido. We believe that this is the only responsible thing to do in what is the worst public health crisis any of us have experienced. We are now pencilling in an opening date of 1st June and will keep the situation under review. This decision has not been taken lightly and it is with great sadness that we bring this news to you. The Trustees are fully committed to the continued success of the Lido which has been built up over the last 25 years and all the support that you have given over those years. For those who are existing Season ticket holders, your ticket will of course be honoured when the Lido does open and we will get back to you with some options in this regard by the end of the month. We thank you all for your understanding and support which you have given the Lido and its dedicated team and hope you will continue your support through what will be a difficult period for all of us.

We are now closed for the winter!

The Main Pool is heated to 26ºC and the Children’s Pool is heated to 30ºC. Season Tickets for 2020 are available to buy now - click here!

The Lido

The lido is a great day out in the heart of Cheltenham, on the edge of the Cotswolds. It is a children's paradise with slides, a children's pool and a paddling pool. Our 50m pool is also an ideal place to train, two lanes are reserved most days.
