Alex Evershead Willatt: Lovely lido easily accessed by bus. Number 8 shaped pool split into a swimming are approx 1.5m deep and a kids area with fountains. I wished I'd brought a book and stayed all day.
Large grassed area for sunbathing and a cafe with drinks, ice-creams and snacks.
Free splash park next door for the young at heart.
