To Cheshire’s open air pool…Marbury Park Open Air pool is a hidden gem nestling within the grounds of Marbury Country Park near Northwich in Cheshire. The pool is set in lawned gardens and is surrounded by woodlands which both screen and shelter the pool and its users. The pool is unheated and features two diving boards – one is a springboard and the other is a platform board. There is also a childrens’ paddling pool and a small play area. There are picnic tables around the grounds and drinks and snacks can be bought at the small shop at the gate.
THE LOCAL AREA - Marbury Country Park offers many miles of walks, cycle trails and bridal paths. Many are accessible by pram and wheelchair. There is also an extensive play area for children and you can feed the ducks on Marbury Mere. Also nearby is the Anderton Boat Lift which has a tea room and Tatton Park, owned by the National Trust, is within easy driving distance.
