Lido Pool

Summer just isn’t as sweet without a dip in our lovely Lido Pool. Located between the Parade Square and the outer back harbour – this wonderful saltwater pool is as refreshing as it is beautiful.

The Lido Pool is open 7 days a week during the summer season with public swim hours throughout the morning and afternoon into the evening. Be sure to bring your camera the backdrop simply can’t be beat, and the sunsets are out of this world.

Home of the Red Cross Swim Program here in Chester – generations of our local families have learned to swim here. It’s a true treasure here in our Seaside Village.
