Children from toddlers upward and their families will all benefit.
The pool is currently a very strong tourist attraction for Ingleton. A splash zone will enhance the overall experience visitors and residents currently have, making us a destination attraction for families with younger children.
As swimming is a key life skill (and 1 in 3 children leave primary school unable to swim a length) the opportunity to play in a safe and fun water play environment will help increase children’s water confidence. These are the future swimmers of Ingleton pool.
There will be a positive (and much needed) financial benefit to local businesses including cafes, shops, pubs, restaurants and accommodation providers.
The swimming pool currently opens from mid May to end of August, the introduction of a splash zone will enable us to have an outdoor water attraction for approximately 2 additional months of the year.
