CHILDREN will soon be able to enjoy outdoor water activities as a pool prepares to reopen to the public.

Hilsea Splashpool will open on Saturday.

Since the new splashpool opened in 2012, Hilsea Lido Pool for the People Trust has been the organisation selected by Portsmouth City Council to manage the water quality and cleanliness of the site and will be running the facility again this year.

The splashpool will open daily at 11am and will close at 6pm.

It is due to close at end of the season on August 31.
