New September & October pool opening times

Extended Autumn Opening Dates

We’re delighted to announce that further to our consultation, in partnership with Cambridge City Council, Jesus Green Lido will remain open into the winter months. Opening times from the 20th September – 31st October are below and if there is demand the season will be extended further 🙂

Better will make a decision about the opening times from November having reviewed demand over the next two months.

The Friends’ Committee expressed their delight at the decision reached jointly between The City Council and Better, with key support from local councillors, and are grateful to all involved in continuing to show their support for the Lido.

Calling all swimmers! Do keep going through the autumn; it’s so beneficial to health and well being, and a great way to meet friends outdoors.
