Due to CoVid The pool will now open on the 25th July (Water temperature was 18°C on 24 July) for an abbreviated
5 6 week season ending on Sunday 6th September. There are many conditions attached to the opening:
- All swims must be booked in advance and are for 1 hour only see https://www.better.org.uk/leisure-centre/cambridge/jesusgreenlido/facilities
- No sitting around the pool allowed.
- No Cafe or sauna.
The Friends of Jesus Green Lido are committed to supporting a much-loved facility and ensuring its bright future.
The Friends of Jesus Green Lido Committee represents swimmers and acts as a voice in consultation with Cambridge City Council (which owns the pool) and BETTER/ GLL (the organisation which currently operates the pool). Regular meetings are held to discuss various aspects of the pool and the Committee values its positive relationship with the City Council and Better.
In recent years a number of improvements have taken place as a result of suggestions from swimmers. These include a longer swimming season and early morning swimming three times a week. The addition of a small sauna is much appreciated in cooler weather.
The café is now running well and the ice cream parlour is popular with families. The Friends are in discussion about future plans for the pool and will be included in the consultation process about any major changes.
