Overview
More
This traditional paddling pool has a very attractive setting on the Walmer Green surrounded by lawns and next to the beach. Young families travel for miles to take advantage of the free facilities. The pool has qualified lifeguards, a refreshment kiosk serving hot and cold snacks all day, changing rooms and toilets, and deck chairs for hire. Adjacent to the pool is a putting green, a play area with large children's games and a bouncy castle.

Thank you Dianne for your lovely words. I shall be sure to pass them on to our staff. You are quite right to suggest a call prior to a visit as the facility is dependent on the weather. The number to call is 01304 373399....More

Worth getting there early as gets very busy on sunny days. Great for small children and safe. They blow up your inflatable pool toys for free and a selection of cold drinks. Parking can be bit of an issue
