Popular paddling pool to open
The popular outdoor paddling pool at Fleming Park, Eastleigh is planned to open on Saturday 28 May in good time for half term and the Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend.
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.
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 open the paddling pool for local families to enjoy this summer.”
The paddling pool run by Hedge End Town Council at St John's Recreation Ground is also opening this weekend.
