- Conference sees the future of outdoor swimming confirmed by the re-opening of London Fields pool

LONDON’S lidos are the talking point at a conference starting in north London today, with the future of outdoor swimming reckoned to be better than for many years.

Called Reviving Lidos, the conference is an optimistic look at the future; one reason for that optimism is the development of a new-from-old lido at Hackney’s London Fields, which will feature a heated Olympic sized pool and a retractable roof

“I know that the local community have kept the dream alive of reopening for years and now we are in a position to pay back those years of commitment,” said London Mayor Ken Livingstone.

London Fields lido is set to re-open this summer, also the re-opening time for the long-running Tooting Bec lido in south London, which has had UKP500,000 spent on it to mark its centenary.
