Disabled access

There is:

  • A disabled toilet and shower, accessible with a radar key – one is held by the lifeguards
  • A hoist which enables people with disabilities to get in and out of the pool with the assistance of the life guards
  • Disabled car parking spaces but it should be noted that the path from the car park to the Lido entrance (approx 100 yards) is rather uneven due to tree roots.
