Letter: Grantham paddling pool could make park wonderful once again
Those of us Grantham residents who were brought up in the town will remember the swimming pool in Dysart Park and how popular it was throughout each summer.
One only has to watch children playing in the Witham and the paddling pools during the summer to see how much being in water out of doors is greatly enjoyed by hundreds. Outdoor pools are healthier than being in the over-heated, chemical-filled water of leisure centres.
Let’s reinstate an outdoor pool (lido) in Dysart Park which would not only be a marvellous asset for Grantham and its environs but also be a focus to make Dysart Park the wonderful park it once was and could be again.
