Redbridge Council is proposing to build a new lido in Valentines park which will provide families and local people with a new leisure facility to enjoy in the heart of the borough.

With the project subject to planning approval, the plan is for the new lido to be built close to the original in the beautiful historic Valentine's park. We expect to utilise the latest technology to ensure the lido is sustainable and cost efficient to run, and anticipate that, once open, the lido will generate income to cover its costs.


A council spokesperson said “Our borough is a great place to live, work, and visit, and we’re continuing to invest in leisure facilities so local families and visitors can access everything they need right on our doorstep.

The new lido will provide a sustainable, fun, and social place for people to exercise in the great outdoors, while boosting our local economy and restoring the heritage of Valentines Park. As well as a new swimming pool, we’re proposing to create a splashpad for children, a café, a gym, and studio space so Valentines Park can become a hub for our local communities to meet, exercise and enjoy.”


The new lido will include the following facilities:


  • 25 metre 6 lane swimming pool
  • Changing facilities
  • Children's splash pad
  • Cafe
  • Gym
  • Dance / exercise studio
  • Meeting room
  • Outdoor recreation / picnic area
  • Car parking
