How do we design an outdoor swimming pool for a community? Offering more time in nature and increased health and well-being. Size, scale, fitting out, changing rooms, reception areas all have to be considered. There is a swimming pool in Eastville Park, Bristol which has been unused and empty since being hit by a bomb during the Second World War, and is to remain locked until the council and police can agree on a more permanent solution. Through leisure activities and providing a space of beauty it is hoped that such an intervention will create greater community cohesion. Consultation earlier in the year uncovered that local people were most keen on a basic, no frills lido.
