Make a Splash With This Perfect Family Day Out
The town of Street is an idyllic village in Somerset. It perfectly typifies the quaint English village atmosphere of the region. At its heart, is Greenbank Pool, a heated outdoor swimming pool appealing to locals and tourists alike.
Here are some frequently asked questions about Greenbank Pool.
What’s it all about?
Greenbank Outdoor Heated Pool has been an established attraction in Street since 1937. Alice Greenbank, a wealthy resident of Street, commissioned her nephew to construct the pool for the benefit of all Street residents. Today, visitors from across the country benefit from her generosity as they bathe in the warm, refreshing water. Or relax by the poolside as the kids play.
What can I expect to see?
The entrance to Greenbank Pools is a dead giveaway to its time. The flat, single-story art deco building is an eye-catching sight in itself. As you enter the pool area itself, you’ll see a shallow semi-circular area where little ones can have a paddle and friends can relax, socialise and keep an eye on the kids.
The shallow area opens out to the pool itself where you can swim some lengths, have fun and make the most of the water during the summer months. The pool also has a diving board at one end, if you feel like practising your diving technique. Or if you just want to mess around!
And that’s not all. Greenbank also provides a little splash zone for tots and a children’s pool with a slide for under 8s.
If safety is a concern, then rest assured that Greenbank Pool has numerous lifeguards stationed at each facility to ensure everyone has a fun time in complete safety.
