Popular paddling pool to reopen

The popular outdoor paddling pool at Fleming Park, Eastleigh is planned to open on Saturday 24 July – at the start of the school summer holidays.

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 great 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 reopen the paddling pool for local families to enjoy in time for the school summer holidays.’

‘However, as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, it is important that we all continue to use personal judgement to keep ourselves and others safe. Everybody needs to continue to act carefully and remain cautious.’
