Droitwich’s Lido has been rated the most family friendly lido by Waitrose magazine.

Cllr. Gerry, O’Donnell, Wychavon District Council’s Portfolio holder for Community development, culture and sport, said: “Droitwich Spa’s Lido is a key part of our heritage, fantastic local facility and tourist attraction. We’re so thrilled that Waitrose magazine chose to recognise it as such a family friendly location. It and the surrounding park offer a brilliant great value day out for all the family.

He continued: “There is ample evidence that enjoying outdoor activities is beneficial to the health and wellbeing of communities, and in particular children. Droitwich Spa Lido presents a perfect environment for families to enjoy these health benefits.”

The pool is open daily with family sessions from 12.30pm – 7.00pm weekdays and as from July 14 we will open the gates from 10am. The weekend family sessions run from 10am – 6pm throughout the season.

For those early birds who want to avoid the crowds, an early morning swim session runs daily. Check out the great value season tickets which can be used in all public sessions, including the early bird swims which now run every weekday 6:30am – 9am and 7:30am – 9:00am on weekends.

Everybody can make the most the sunshine and enjoy a dip in the heated pool.

Droitwich Spa Lido also offers private parties with brand new play equipment such as water zorbs, pedal boats and kayaks! Hire slots are available daily from 6:30pm, call 01905 799342 or email droitwichspalido@hotmail.co.uk for more information.
