Jesus Green Lido was officially opened on Saturday 13th May by the Mayor of Cambridge, Jeremy Benstead.
The preparation of the lido has been ongoing since the beginning of April with the maintenance team of Trever Williams and Robert Oliver putting in a massive effort to get the pool ready.
The ladies changing/shower room has also had a refresh with the same planned with the male changing/shower room next season.
On Friday 12th May we opened our doors to the Friends of Jesus Green Lido User Group to have a pre-opening swim from 5pm-6.30pm. Around 40 swimmers attended and all feedback was extremely positive, especially for the refurbishment of the new showers and the extended opening times (alongside triathlon bookings we have secured). The first weekend saw over 800 swimmers join us for a free open weekend.
Special mention must go to Shirley Oliver (General Manager), Helen Dwyer, Callum Lewis and Hannah Ridge for all their hard work, enthusiam and commitment to get the pool ready for our opening weekend.
