Last chance to enjoy Exeter’s paddling pools
People have a few more days left to enjoy Exeter’s paddling pools before they close down for the year.
With what has been one of the best summers in recent years, thousands of youngsters – along with Mums, Dads and grandparents – have been enjoying a cooling paddle in St Thomas and Heavitree.
St Thomas Paddling Pool stays open until Sunday (8 September) evening. After then, work will begin on a new splash park on 9 September, in time for it to be open next Summer.
Cllr Keith Owen, Lead Councillor for Environment, Health and Wellbeing, said: “It makes a pleasant change for us to have a decent summer to be able to enjoy these free facilities. Generation upon generations in Exeter have taken advantage of these much-loved pools and this year they have proved extremely popular, not just with the locals but with visitors coming into the city.”
