Vale of White Horse District Council is to replace Abingdon’s Abbey Meadow Outdoor Pool with a brand new pool during 2017 in readiness for the new season in 2018. 

The new pool will include a shallow beach area allowing easy access to the water, great for children, and a deep water area for more experienced swimmers and diving. 

The plans will also see the pool changing rooms and toilets refurbished, and completely new plant and machinery will ensure the facility can be used for many years to come. 

While the outdoor pool will be closed for construction over the summer of 2017 the popular splash park will continue to be available for young children to use, along with the snack kiosk, those wishing to swim will be able to use the nearby White Horse Leisure and Tennis Centre.
