Popular paddling pool opens for 2023
The popular outdoor paddling pool at Fleming Park, Eastleigh is planned to open on Saturday 27 May in good time for the summer half term.
IMPORTANT - the pool has been filled with water to allow the chemicals to settle/balance - children should not play in the pool before Saturday 27 May.
The facility is provided by the Council in partnership with Places for People (who manage Places Leisure Eastleigh) and is popular with thousands of local families that flock to the pool and play area complex in sunny weather. The paddling pool, that is free for the public to use, includes a number of water features for the children to enjoy and is also next to a large play area and sandpit providing an ideal facility for all the family. To meet he demand for the facility, the fencing has been extended to increase the size of the safe space for families around the pool. This includes space under existing mature trees to provide shade and the planting of new trees to provide shade in years to come.
Chair of Eastleigh Local Area Committee Cllr Alex Bourne said, “The paddling pool is a fantastic local facility, is hugely popular with families with young children and of course it’s absolutely free for everyone to use. I’m delighted that we are now able to reopen the paddling pool for local families to enjoy this summer.”
