Jesus Green Lido
Jesus Green Lido
Jesus Green Swimming Pool is a lido situated on Jesus Green in Cambridge. Opened in 1923, it is one of the few remaining examples of the lidos built across the country in the 1920s open air pools with space for activities other than swimming. Unusually, the pool is significantly longer than it is wide this was a design idea to mimic swimming in the nearby river. It opens for public bathing between May and September every year.
Jesus Green, though only 15 yards wide, is among the longest outdoor swimming pools in Europe at 100 yards in length.
It has a depth of 1.2 metres at each end, and a maximum depth of 2.5 metres in the centre. Diving is allowed into the centre section of the pool.
