Welcome to Hitchin Outdoor Pool
Set in beautiful surroundings, the 50m heated outdoor pool we are currently open for lane swimming and family swimming sessions. We have a small pool and play area that is great to bring your little ones which is open during family our sessions.

The sunbathing area and café is currently closed but we aim to reopen if restrictions are lifted on 19th July 2021. Toilets are available on the outdoor pool, but currently we are only using indoor changing rooms due to the government restrictions. 

About our swimming sessions
We are running 45 minutes sessions in the pool to enable as many people as possible in the local community to enjoy the outdoor pool this summer.

We advise all customers to arrive at the centre 'beach ready.' When you arrive you will be asked to queue up outside the centre, entrance will be 10 minutes prior to your session start time. You will need to collect a wrist band from reception before making your way to the outdoor pool for your session. 

Currently only the indoor changing rooms are available and you will need a £1 coin for the lockers. After your 45 minute sessions, you will have 15 minutes to shower and change before leaving the centre.
