Site Upgrade Appeal!!

Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool is an outdoor swimming experience in a unique setting, where residents and visitors to Cirencester can enjoy swimming in heated well-water, relaxing on our patio and enjoying refreshments in a beautiful location on the edge of Cirencester Park.

For 15 weeks a year, the loyal committee has been keeping the pool open since May 1973 when Cirencester Town Council was unable to continue its involvement. Without the volunteer Committee, the pool would have closed.

Over the years, the historic site (built in 1869) has left a legacy of many mechanical and structural problems. Thanks to funding from a supportive donor, COASP recently embarked upon a visionary upgrade project to allow the pool to operate in a more economical and efficient way.

Phase One: the new main building, has been completed on time and on budget and we need your donations to help raise £160,000 to complete the rest of the planned work: including improved disability access and pool covers.

Current Progress

£86,200 has been raised so far.

£86,200 / £160,000

Appeal Thanks

We thank the following Trusts for their kind donations towards the upgrade work:

Summerfield Trust
HDH Wills 1965 Charitable Trust
June Stevens Foundation
