Abbey Meadows outdoor pool activities

The pool has plenty of activities and facilities for all the family, including:
•    inflatable play sessions
•    sun loungers
•    snack kiosk and picnic area
•    pool parties
•    learner pool.

This is one of the few pools in Oxfordshire where poolside diving is allowed as it is sufficiently deep. 

For those wanting to make the most of English weather the pool has pleasant grassed areas and sun loungers for rental at modest price.

Picnic area
There are picnic tables adjacent to the pool overlooking the river - perfect for an après swim snack or ice cream from the kiosk.

Swimming lanes
The pool is generally not divided into lanes, but users can request a lane by asking a member of the pool staff. 

Free Parking
There is 2 hours free car parking in the nearby Abbey Meadows car park
