Thompson Park is one of the few parks in Lancashire that features a paddling pool. These were once common features however they have declined in number due to the costly maintenance and supervision required. Public consultation revealed that the paddling pool in Thompson Park was much loved, and it was deemed important to keep it.
Fancy a paddle?
The pool is filled at weekends and school holidays between April and September on days when the weather is warm and sunny. A park attendant is always nearby to ensure safety and to ensure everybody is having fun.
