“Great way to spend a summer afternoon ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Clean and cared for and plenty of room for the little ones to splash about and explore. The large pool is still on the fresh side like I remember from years ago but once you get moving its fine. Clean changing rooms and showers.

“Great fun & excellent value for money...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Recommended by friends, we visited and were greeted with a warm welcome from young, friendly (local) staff who doubled as Lifeguards on a rota-basis.

Hot & cold food and drinks were available to buy but equally, visitors are allowed to bring their own. In either case, a sheltered seating area is provided to avoid the sun (or rain & thunder!).

Changing rooms were more than adequate including individual cubicles. Small lockers are available which cost just 20p + a £1.00 refundable deposit.

If you have a full day or even a half day, Bourne Outdoor Pool provides a great fun place for kids of ALL shapes and sizes.

“Wonderful swimming pool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Rescued from council closure by local volunteers who have kept it going for20 years, this is a lovely spot. There is a proper swimming pool,a children's paddling pool, and lovely planting. The hanging rooms are basic but clean and there is a nice cafe.

This is a proper community effort - Bourne at its best.

“Fabulous facility on our doorstep”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

An old fashioned, rectangular pool for proper swimming. On the days we went, the sun was warm and the pool was busy. A great family atmosphere with people of all ages. The youngsters could use the toddlers pool and water fountain to splash around in. You could bring your own food or get snacks and ice creams from the
kiosk. I heard complaints about the pool surround being uneven. Yes it was made of concrete slabs, which weren't totally level, but bearing in mind the history of this pool it wasn't surprising.. If you enjoy an outdoor swim on a sunny day, look no further.
