Paddling Pools April Update

Work on Conwy’s paddling pools is progressing well, with Llanfairfechan paddling pool completed.

Contractors are entering the final stages of completing the work at Rhos-on-Sea and Penmawnmawr. All major construction work has taken place, with the final stages just requiring a period of dry weather to complete.

Following Storm Pierrick (09/04/24), it’ll take a few days to empty Craig-y-Don paddling pool, clear the debris, and inspect for storm damage before work can continue.

Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure and Cabinet Member for Environment, Roads and Facilities – Infrastructure, paid a visit to two of the sites recently.

The project team explained the work that’s been completed to date and provided an update on progress to ensure the facilities open for the summer season and are fit for purpose for many years to come.

Cllr Aaron Wynne said: “This has been a major investment to secure the long term future of these much loved community assets and I’m pleased to report that work is progressing well.”

Cllr Goronwy Edwards said: “Despite almost continuous rain since July, our contractors have pulled out all the stops and I’d like to thank them for all their hard work.”

The Council is proud of the fact that it has four of only five remaining free public paddling pools in North Wales and recognises the importance of them to both local people and to our visitor economy.

We have invested heavily in all of our paddling pools over the past year to ensure their future is secure and we are grateful for the patience of our communities whilst this essential work has been taking place.
