Abbey Meadow Outdoor Pool
The open air pool at Abbey Meadow is open across the summer months and is managed for the District Council by Better (GLL).
The pool is situated in a wonderful location in the Abbey Meadows alongside the River Thames. After your swim you can picnic on the wooden bench tables or on the grass.
There is a free children’s water play park just outside the pool area, which is open for the same period as the pool. The water play park is surrounded by a large area of grassland which is idea for family picnics. The kiosk nearby serves hot and cold drinks, ice creams, confectionery etc.
The Abbey Meadows also has a large children’s play area, hard surface tennis courts, a 9-hole pitch ‘n’ putt course and crazy golf course, and is adjacent to the beautiful and colourful Abbey Grounds and gardens. The area also links-up with the Sustrans Cycle Route.
Car parking is very close by at the end of Abbey Close and has free parking for two hours.
Relaxing river walks are close by - such as a stroll along the riverbank, over the weir to the lock where one can watch the boats coming in and out of the lock.
