Description: Brockwell Lido, nestled in the corner of Brockwell Park, is a much-loved local landmark, providing summer fun and great memories since it opened back in 1937.
With Art-Deco buildings part of its attraction and an injection of over 3million pounds by Fusion, including 500,000 pounds funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Lido has been painstakingly restored and improved, with brand new amenities that will guarantee its survival as a very special place for generations to come.
Indeed, it has now been shortlisted for a 'National Heritage' Award (June 2009) and could be named 'top lottery funded attraction' with a 2,000 pound prize!
The pool has always been a great place to spend summer days, and now the lovely Art Deco Grade II listed building has been extended and transformed into a year-round centre for Health, Vitality and Wellbeing, offering fantastic health & fitness facilities, combined with superb surroundings and exceptional service.
