Could Jesus Green Lido Stay Open in Winter?


ITV News reports: An outdoor pool in Cambridge could be set to open all year round after a boom in outdoor swimming during the pandemic. Jesus Green Lido usually opens from May to September but the City Council is said to be considering keeping it going over winter too.


"There is definitely a demand to swim in all weathers and an excellent case to open beyond mid September, in common with a number of lidos elsewhere in the country. It would be fantastic if we could find a way of getting more year-round use of this magnificent amenity and promote even more strongly the incredible benefits in terms of physical and mental wellbeing."
