Hinksey Outdoor Swimming Pool is set to reopen in mid-May following work that is currently taking place to reline the pool from a £132k investment by Oxford City Council.
Hinksey Heated Outdoor Pool has opened for the 2022 summer season, and bookings are being accpeted via the Fusion Lifestyle website or on the Fusion Lifestyle app.
The pool, which closed at the end of July, will remain closed for the initial task of installing heat pumps as part of decarbonisation works to be carried out in the plant room.
A project will see gas boilers at the leisure centre swimming pools replaced with heat pumps that transfer heat from the air or water, which will cut carbon emissions by around 21%.
