Attraction Information

Helmsley Open Air Swimming Pool offers a warm swim in the open air.

The pool, together with the Recreation Ground, is currently in the early stages of a regeneration programme, which means the current facilities are pretty basic, but still rare and hard to beat for children and families, as there is only a concessional charge. Planned works include refurbished changing rooms, remodelled showers, and a painted wall surround, some of which will be ready for this year.

Helmsley Pool is open daily between 11:45 and 19:00, from mid-June to early September, with a number of sessions available throughout the day, some of which have activities, while others are for adults only (Monday to Friday 11:45 to 13:00).

This is much more charming than an indoor pool, plus is has excellent water quality, and is kept at a pretty constant 28 C. It's never too overcrowded, and there is a play park next door, with a zip wire that offers a pretty good way to dry off!
