Park Road Lido
Park Road Pools in Crouch End includes the lovely 50m Park Road Lido, named the best lido in London by Time Out in 2004. The open-air pool opened on 1 June 1929 was 165 ft x 75 ft when it was called Hornsey Lido. Today, the pool is warmed and open between May and October when the clear blue waters bring a refreshing coolness to sunbathers and swimmers lounging on the edges of the grassy banks. The children's pool and fountain provide great entertainment for toddlers in a safe environment and there's a shallow-step pool entry and lift in to the main pool for wheelchair users. If the weather is less than stifling, why not get wet in one of the three adjacent indoor pools which include a diving pool. But don't let a spot of rain put you off swimming on a summers day - that's the best time to go as you practically have the place to yourself. The popularity of Park Road's four pools is soon apparent when you see the statistics: 350,000 local people take a refreshing dip in these inviting waters each year.
