Jesus Green Outdoor Pool

Jesus Green Outdoor Pool

The lido on Jesus Green is open again for summer 2017! See all the details here.

Situated on the edge of the River Cam, the pool first opened in 1923 and is one of the few remaining examples of its kind in the UK. It's the perfect way to cool down during the summer months and a fantastic place to relax and unwind with friends and family.

There are paved and grassy areas around the pool so you can also catch some rays by the poolside.

Jesus Green Lido facts...

  • It's Europe's longest lido

  • The lido has been drained and re-painted for the 2017 season

  • It took five days to re-fill the water

  • The pool first opened nearly 100 years ago

  • Jesus Green lido was designed to be long and thin to mimic swimming in the Cam

  • At the time of opening, the water's a chilly 11 degrees (but the lovely Cambridge sunshine will soon warm it up, won't it??)

Before and after...

See the pictures as the pool's drained, painted and re-filled, ready to welcome guests in summer 2017!
