Sandford Parks Lido will open on Saturday 9th April at 11.00am, however we have been dealt a major blow late on Wednesday night with a catastrophic failure of our boiler system which heats both our swimming pools. The boiler had been operating as normal, steadily heating the water to be ready for the opening day.
Every effort has been made to repair the boiler with staff staying very late and several companies pitching in to try and rectify the problem. This is an ongoing situation and we will keep you informed via social media as to its progress.
Since the charitable trust took over running of the facility in 1996 we have strived to maintain warm water operating at 25c in the main pool and 30c in the children’s pool. We are very disappointed to have not made our operating water temperature, the current water temperature is 16C.
