Open air pool is a summer 'must visit'

swimming_pool002Cherwell District Council, Banbury Town Council and Parkwood Community Leisure are pleased to announce that Woodgreen Leisure Centre open air pool will open to the public this year from Saturday, 28 May. The pool has been a highlight in Banburians' summers days out since the early 1950s (pictured left).
Cherwell District Council portfolio holder for environment, recreation and health, Councillor George Reynolds, said: "Over the past two years the pool has re-established itself as a must-visit Cherwell summer attraction. Already this year the pool has played host to a British canoe water polo national team training session. And on 8 May it will be the scene for the Banbury Triathlon. Then from 28 May things will get into full swing when it opens to the public in time for May half term."
The costs will be £3.50 for adults and £2.20 for juniors and senior citizens per session.
