City of Wolverhampton Council reopened Tettenhall Pool today for families to enjoy over the summer.
Since 1989, the city council has maintained Tettenhall Pool which has seen many visitors over the years and proven to be extremely popular during the six weeks’ holidays.
As the sunshine returned this morning, young families visited the pool to enjoy a splash around for the first time this summer.
Earlier this year, the pool temporarily closed for required repair works which will extend the life of the pool for the next 30 years.
Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing at City of Wolverhampton Council said: “I’m so pleased the pool has reopened on time for children to enjoy and keep active over the summer holidays.
“It’s always fantastic to see families laughing and playing together at Tettenhall Pool and today has been no exception.
“Now the pool has reopened, I’m sure this free attraction will be enjoyed by many residents and visitors to Tettenhall over the upcoming weeks.”
This year, the city council has also launched ‘Summer Squad’ an events programme for children and young people to enjoy over the summer. To see the full list of activities on offer visit: www.summersquad.co.uk
