Following the government’s lifting of Covid restrictions, we are pleased to announce Christchurch Paddling Pool is now open to the public.
Staff have been working hard to ensure the cleanliness and safety of the pool. The pool will be open and staffed daily between 10am to 5pm (7pm on Mondays and Wednesdays), until Sunday 5 September.
We know people are keen to use the paddling pool during the summer months and with the warm weather, it will be a welcome return for this well-used riverside facility for families across Reading.
We are still encouraging everyone to keep safety in mind when using the pool – for example, if it is busy, consider returning another time or day.

Children’s play area
A large, close-cut grass meadow on the north bank of the Thames, stretching from Caversham Bridge to Reading Bridge. Specimen trees and shrubs feature along the bank, providing shade and interest around the play area. The fenced children’s play area includes a paddling/ boating pool and picnic tables. A distinctive line of Lombardy poplars edges the George Street boundary. The metalled cycleway running along the bank has streetlights to aid visibility in the evening.
