Congleton Paddling Pool is open for Summer until Sunday 4 September 2022

The pool has been a firm favourite with young children since the 1930s! It is managed by Congleton Town Council and can be found in Park Road, CW12 1DP next to the Daneside Theatre. The pool will operate for two sessions a day, 5 days a week from Wednesday to Sunday. Morning sessions are 10am – 1pm and afternoon from 2pm – 5pm. It is a free facility, but visitors will need to book their free spaces online in advance (when bookings open). Spaces are limited to 140 people per session and everyone needs an entry ticket – including toddlers and babies.

Tickets will be released daily a week in advance. Cut-off for same day bookings is 8am for mid week sessions and 10am close every Friday for sessions on a Saturday and Sunday. There will be 140 tickets for each session and everyone entering the pool area will need a booked place, including babies and toddlers. A person can download a maximum of 8 tickets and will be restricted to one session a week. The facility is designed for children aged 11 years and under and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

**Please note: If you are driving to use this facility please be aware that there is no access to Daneside Theatre and part of Park Road is limited to resident only parking – so please use the Town Centre car-parks, several of which are located very near by.

A Paddling Pool Attendant will be on duty at all times and should be contacted if you need the key for the toilet, access to the first aid box or general advice. All children must be accompanied by an adult. The facility is designed for children aged 11 and under.

All litter should be put in the bins provided and children should not take food or drink into the water as this can cause a problem with the filters.
