Shap Open Air Swimming Pool
Visit England's highest heated outdoor pool
2022 season news
We are now closed following a successful 2022 summer season.
We're having an open meeting, including our AGM, on Thursday 6th October, 7pm, at the Greyhound Hotel in Shap.
Come along to find out more about the plans for next year, contribute your ideas and find out how you can help to keep the pool running successfully.
We are a volunteer run open. We usually open at the end of May and the season will run until the end of the school summer holidays in early September.
Recent improvements for the pool include:
a new toddler pool for our little splashers - heated to an average 28c
our heating system has been upgraded to make sure we can keep our water at a comfortable temperature on those colder Shap days
our shop has been refitted to make it easier for our volunteers to work in
all the grouting around the edge of the pool has been replaced with new grouting that gives a smoother finish and should mean less annual maintenance
school swimming lessons came back for our local schools
If you're able to help at the pool, please get in touch at email@example.com - we'd love to have you join our committee team, or just become one of our regular volunteers in the shop or as pat of the pool maintenance team.
Full training will be given and as a thank you to everyone who helps this year, we will have a "thank you" offer for volunteers with a season ticket discount so you can enjoy the pool too!
