Revamped paddling pool set to make a splash this summer in Staple Tye


Construction work is well under way over at Staple Tye paddling pool to transform it into a new splash park and paddling pool facility for families.

When complete it will be the first hybrid facility of its kind in the town providing an amazing new facility for Staple Tye families and families across the town. Construction works begun in March and are on course to be completed in time for the start of the paddling pool season in July 2022.

The larger pool is being converted into a splash park and the smaller pool will be kept as a paddling area, with the addition of some water features.

The layout will include several new features including water arcs, water jets and blasts, water curtains and streaming showers. New, brightly coloured, non-slip flooring is being installed, with artificial grass surrounding the updated facility as well as update perimeter fencing.

Accessibility improvements for residents will also be made including enhanced steps, new ramped approaches and 9 new, modern perimeter benches.

New plant equipment will make the facility more energy efficient and cheaper to run, and there will be no standing water left in the pool overnight meaning it can be thoroughly cleaned before the following day’s opening.
