The Lammas Land Pool is also apparently known as Newnham Paddling Pool and neither should be mistaken for the Sheep's Green Learner Pool, which is nearby!
The Lammas Pool is a large and shallow paddler, ideal for pelting in and out of on hot summer days. There's also a pleasingly large playground with swings, slides, several climbing frames and loads of other traditional play fare. There are accessible toilets too and a seasonal refreshment kiosk nearby in the park, so it's comfortably placed for a longish stop especially given that it's all free!
The Sheeps Green Pool, is close by but significantly deeper and has lifeguards so good for older kids. There are no charges for this pool either, so you can happily spend a day here with a variety of age ranges, switching parks and pools as you fancy with only a minor stroll in between them.
And it's all close to the Fen Causeway where one can hire a punt and explore the area or avail oneself of the local hospitality.
A word to the wise, folks: be sure to check out your maps or satnav before you set off, we had trouble with the coordinates. Access is apparently via Barton Road
