Lido to open Saturday with a family fun day
Ilkley Lido will make a splash as it officially re-opens for the summer season this Saturday (May 25) and will mark the occasion with a family fun day special offer.
With sunny skies forecast, visitors are invited to attend the summer opening event from 10am to 5.30pm, at a cost of £2.50 per person (for one day only).
A typical weekend can see around 5,000 people visiting the lido to take advantage of the outdoor facilities. As temperatures rise this week, hopefully record numbers of people will be flocking to the lido to take a dip.
Steve Hartley, Bradford Council's Strategic Director for Place, said: "Ilkley Lido is a great place for a family day out with its wide range of activities and its location, close to Ilkley town centre and on the edge of the beautiful Ilkley Moor. We are looking forward to a great family fun day on Saturday."
The Bradford-Council run venue is one of the top ten open air pools in the country. The Lido, built in 1935, has a 45-metre stretch of shallow water and slide for children, a fountain pool and a lagoon-shaped pool for swimmers. It is surrounded by a grassy area for relaxing on sunny days and has far-reaching views across Ilkley Moor. There is also a cafe, tennis courts, putting green and bowling green.
Season tickets for the lido are also now on sale and cost £135 for adults and £67.50 for adult Bradford Leisure Card holders, senior citizens and juniors.
