Residents looking for a splashing time will be delighted to know that City of Wolverhampton Council has reopened Tettenhall Pool.

The popular pool opened to visitors at the weekend after water safety checks and maintenance repairs were carried out.

The council looks after Tettenhall Pool, and over the years it has attracted many visitors from across the city and proven to be extremely popular during the school holidays. 

The pool, situated in the heart of Tettenhall's Upper Green, had to close during 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. But it was open again last August and this year is ready in time for the school half term holidays.

Anyone looking forward to visiting the pool is being encouraged to enjoy the water safely and to be considerate to local residents and other users.

Councillor Steve Evans, Cabinet Member for city environment and climate change at City of Wolverhampton Council, said: “We know how popular Tettenhall Pool is during the warmer weather and we’ve been busy getting it ready over the past few weeks for plenty of summer fun.

“Hopefully there will be some hot days on the horizon so I’d just like to remind people of the importance of wearing hats and sun screen while taking a dip – and do make sure you wear suitable clothes and shoes.

“We all like to enjoy a cool drink and perhaps relax with a picnic by the pool, but please remember to be considerate to local residents and take away all your litter with you. We’d also like to remind people that if they bring their dogs, to make sure they are kept under control.”

Tettenhall Pool will be available for splashing until 11 September.

Meanwhile, plans to invest £500,000 to improve facilities in East Park are currently moving forward, following feedback from hundreds of local residents and young people.

The results of local community consultation, led by an independent research company, are being reviewed by the council to identify the most sustainable and cost effective options.

Following this a full public report will be prepared with recommendations on the proposed way forward and there will be further public engagement, especially with local young people, to shape plans for the park.
