Hilsea splash pool to be open for summer holidays

FAMILIES will be able to enjoy a splash park which is reopening this Bank Holiday Monday.

The Hilsea Jubilee Splash Pool will be open again for the summer.

The splash pool, at Hilsea Lido, has two shallow water pools with play features and rubber safety surfacing which is suitable for children aged eight and under.

It also has free parking and space for picnics including picnic tables.

Toilets and a cafe are also nearby.

Councillor Linda Symes, Portsmouth City Council’s cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport, said the pool is great for a day out.

She added: ‘It can be difficult to keep children occupied in the school holidays.

‘The splash pool presents the ideal opportunity to keep kids active and happy but best of all it’s free.’

The splash pool is open from 11am until 6pm daily.
