Swimmers have returned to Abingdon’s Abbey Meadow outdoor pool, after it re-opened on Saturday 16th June, following its £1.3m refurbishment over winter 2017/18.

The new look L-shaped pool has a beach-style sloping entrance at one end. The other end of the pool is deeper and can be used for lane swimming.

The pool has become a deck level pool where water sits at the full height of the pool’s sides, which improves filtration and water quality. A rubber crumbed surface has been installed to create a safe area around the pool and in front of the changing rooms. The changing rooms now have coin-operated lockers.

For more information on the pool please see GLL website (click).
