Damage To Splashpool Forces It To Close

Splashpool opposite D-Day museum temporarily closed.

The Portsmouth City Council owned splashpool, which is opposite the D-Day Museum on the seafront, has been temporarily closed as the bottom of the pool was damaged at the weekend.

The pool was closed on Sunday morning (19th August) when it was noticed that there were holes in the soft floor, possibly caused by children picking at it. 

The attraction is likely to be closed for a few days until it can be repaired so the water-play area is once again safe for children to use. 

It only opened again at the end of May after specialist cleaners were called in to remove an unusual form of algae.

The council it's extremely disappointing given the lovely weather but children can still have summer holiday fun by visiting the watersplash at Canoe Lake or Hilsea splashpool.
