Paddling Pools Update

Conwy County Borough Council have released the following statement about Paddling Pools

Conwy’s four paddling pools will reopen for the summer season following refurbishment as planned.

Cllr Aaron Wynne, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure said: “This has been a major investment to secure the long-term future of these much-loved community assets.

“I’d like to reassure residents that we’re committed to getting the work completed at all sites for the benefit of those living and visiting our county.  Whilst we understand the disappointment caused last year we are pleased that we have been able to invest to protect the future of all four of our paddling pools and look forward to opening them for summer 2024.

Penmaenmawr – we have refurbished the walkway, as well as carrying out work on the pool base and material below.”


Penmaenmawr Town Council have been talking to CCBC to ensure that the work is completed before the planned re-opening on the May Bank Holiday.

Cllr Gavin Parry, Chair of the Well-being, Engagement and Events Committee said “The Town Council know how important the paddling pool is for both residents and visitors. That is why we have worked to ensure that CCBC are on schedule to complete the work before the planned opening. Not having the pool open last year was a blow to the local community and businesses and we want this fantastic facility to be used and enjoyed all summer”.
