Lido Community Announcement

Phased Re-Opening Announcement

We are pleased to announce that from Monday 20th July 2020 Sandford Parks Lido will commence a phased reopening of lane swimming only.

As previous announcements have stipulated, the shortened 2020 season will operate in a very different way to previously, in order to comply with Government and industry guidelines.

Regretfully, we have decided not to sell any new Season Tickets for this season. Any existing Season Ticket Holders will be able to collect their cards from Reception on their first visit.

Below is an outline of our planned phased re-open. Further details will be published later this week.

The Phases

Week 1 - Season Ticket Holders Week

From Monday 20th July to Sunday 26th July

The first week of opening will be for current Season Ticket Holders only.

Season Ticket Holders will be able to book their 1-hour waves from Friday 17th July - All existing Season Ticket Holders will be emailed with a link to book their session on Friday 17th July.

Numbers per wave will be limited to 50 swimmers in the 1st week.


Week 2 – Open to All with Limited numbers

From Monday 27th July to Sunday 2nd August

The second week of opening, we will operate in much the same way as the first week.

Both Season Ticket Holders and the general public will be able to book their 1-hour waves from Friday 24th July by visiting our website and following the links.

Numbers per wave will continue to be restricted.

Week 3 – Open to All with Limited numbers

From Monday 3rd August to Sunday 9th August

The third week will continue to be run on restricted times and numbers. Any changes to this will, be done as a result of Government or industry guidelines.

We would also like to stress that the continued financial viability of staying open this season will be assessed regularly, and decisions may be made at short notice in order to protect the long-term viability of the Lido.

Kind Regards
