by Lauren Abbott

Kent's outdoor pools are now opening for summer.

Faversham Pools has thrown open the doors to its outdoor facilities after fitting a new children's slide for the toddler splash pool over the winter.

The heated outdoor pools will now be open from now until September and include a 30m pool with diving boards, wild water rapids pool with splash zone and a toddler pool.

The outdoor pools in Leslie Smith Drive first opened in 1964 with the indoor pools added in 1993.

Faversham Pools is not the only outdoor lido in Kent which is opening for the summer this month.

Walmer Paddling Pool, run by Your Leisure, has also started to welcome visitors from this week.

But the attraction on Walmer Green is weather dependent so visitors are strongly advised to check it is open before they travel to the traditional paddling pool.

The Strand in Gillingham is also preparing to welcome its first visitors of 2019. According to the attraction's facebook page it is getting ready to open to swimmers from Saturday, May 25 when it begins its summer season in Medway.

The splash pool in Swanley Park and the outdoor heated pool in Tonbridge both opened in April.
