Jesus green lido
Jesus Green Swimming Pool is a Lido situated on Jesus Green in Cambridge. Opened in 1923, it is one of the few remaining examples of the lidos built across the country in the 1920s — open air pools with space for activities other than swimming.
Unusually, the pool is significantly longer than it is wide. This was a design idea to mimic swimming in the nearby river. It opens for public swimming between May and September every year.
Located alongside the River Cam opposite Chesterton Road between Jesus Lock and Victoria Avenue Bridge, we have a newly built Sauna, sunbathing space and is paved on one side with grass on the other.
