Approach Road & Car Park

Fundraising

Approach Road & Car Park

Thanks to a very generous grant we have at last been able to re-surface the approach road and car park, which we inherited in such an awful state when we took over the pool in 2010.

We have also replaced all the overgrown hedge with smart new fencing.

Whilst sadly we haven't been able to make the car park any bigger, we have installed new road markings to make the public, disabled and staff parking much clearer and easier to control.

Unfortunately we do not allow any animals on site, except guide dogs.

Wristband System

On busy days we operate a wristband system, which allows us to control bather numbers in the pool and maintain customer safety. 

This system means customers will be asked to exit the water for a period of time, whilst band colours are rotated - you do not have to leave the site. 

Once the pool is full we implement a one in one out system at our entry gate, when this happens please expect long queues. On hot days remember to bring water.

Canoe hire

Enjoy a canoe trip upsteam from the lido on one of the most attractive and unspoilt stretches of the River Waveney. Dependent on how fast you paddle, the journey to The Locks Inn will take you about 1.5 hours each way, where you can stop for a meal or drink and makes for a lovely day out. Fancy a longer trip? The stretch of river above The Locks Inn to Ellingham is unnavigable to other craft so you can lose yourself in the peace and tranquillity of the wonderful river and it's wildlife
