Gearing up for a summer of fun at Tides Leisure Centre in Deal & Walmer Paddling Pool

Tides splash pool

It’s set to be a summer of fun following a major investment programme by Dover District Council at Tides Leisure Centre in Deal.  Whilst much of the work has gone on behind the scenes with new plant and machinery, the popular leisure pool will feature some new attractions for younger visitors to the splash pool this summer, including a tipping bucket and a water squirting fish!    

Dover District Council has upgraded key plant and machinery at Tides, including new boilers, improvements to the air handling system which controls the air and humidity, and a new pool heat exchanger incorporated into a new building management system to better regulate environmental conditions in the pool and improve energy efficiency. 

Lee Waddon, Centre Manager at Tides, said: “We’d like to thank customers for bearing with us whilst these major refurbishment works have been underway.  We now have much more reliable plant and machinery and are able to better regulate the air and pool temperatures. 

“We’re also delighted that Dover District Council has funded some new facilities to help our younger users become more confident in the water with fun additions to our splash pool.” 

Dover District Council also offers four hours free car parking for leisure centre users at Tides.  

With the free to enter Walmer Paddling Pool set to open for the 2019 season on Bank Holiday Monday (6 May) all we need now is some summer weather!

Tides Leisure & Indoor Tennis Centre, and Walmer Paddling Pool are operated on behalf of Dover District Council by Your Leisure Kent Ltd.
