About
This traditional paddling pool has a very attractive setting on the Walmer Green surrounded by lawns and next to the beach. Young families travel for miles to take advantage of the free facilities. The pool has qualified lifeguards, a refreshment kiosk serving hot and cold snacks all day, changing rooms and toilets, and deck chairs for hire. Adjacent to the pool is a putting green, a play area with large children's games and a bouncy castle.

Beware!
Aug 2019
Beware! No-one and I mean no one watches the children. Currently here right now and children are running wild the parents nor lifeguards batting an eyelid. Only a matter of time before a child slips and cracks their head open to be blunt. Too many older children with silly water guns and water shooters deliberately squirting the little ones in the face. I really don’t know why you sell water blasters when all they do is cause chaos! Would recommend for 7+years but for toddlers and little children don’t bother. Such a shame as it’s a beautiful place and wonderful idea but there seems to be zero rules and has really spoilt our time here. Will come back with my toddler when the summers over and older children are in school. Shame.

Gem of a place on a hot day
Jun 2019 • Family
We stopped off here on Saturday for our youngster to have a little paddle. Totally unprepared for this visit he had an excellent time and we subsequently left 2 hours later. Although it was one of the hottest days of the year there was plenty of space for us to sit down and relax whilst all the kids were having a great time. Paddling pool was clean, grass area was clean and well maintained and staff on duty very polite. We will definitely visit again and we will be more organised by at least taking a towel with us. Also this venue is FOC. Unbelievable. It's not very often you go somewhere and not charged an entrance fee.

Great free one for kids in summer
Jun 2018 • Family
they accommodate groups of children its enclosed and safe a real sun trap can get really warm in summer uv levels gets high be careful cream the kids up regularly. In good weather need to get there early as parking can be an issue but can usually find a space on Marine parade.

Great family day out
Aug 2018 • Family
Love it!! There are not many things you get to do for free but this place is, you can of course spend money on food and drinks(cash only) but you can always bring a picnic. Over the summer I have used this place about 10 times and have enjoyed every time and so has my 2 year old can’t wait for next summer to use it again.

Paddling in style
Jun 2017
Went into Deal for breakfast intending to go for paddle with grandaughter later in the day but the weather was cloudy and then it started raining. Had virtually given up on idea but on getting nearer to the site we heard lots of excited children. On inspection this actually turned out to be a school outing on the green next to the paddling pool. When we checked pool there was only one child and his parents. Temperature was not too bad and the quietness of pool was too good to miss. Once in the water the sun shone on us. Could not have been better! Water clean and surroundings great. Lifeguards on duty. Thought ourselves blessed to have had the pool to ourselves. Grandaughter loved it.

Clean and well looked after
Jun 2017 • Family
I went with my daughter in law and baby granddaughter. The paddling pool was almost empty although it was a warm but overcast day. Very friendly staff, very clean facility which is free to enter. Good selection of snacks and food and ice creams. Lovely spot for a picnic and for younger children. Weather dependent so good idea to call Tides Leisure centre if in doubt

Thank you Dianne for your lovely words. I shall be sure to pass them on to our staff. You are quite right to suggest a call prior to a visit as the facility is dependent on the weather. The number to call is 01304 373399. Glad you enjoyed your day.
