History

The lido was designed in 1935 by John Wibberley.[1] It was officially opened on 2 October 1935[1]

A victim of declining popularity and neglect, the lido closed in 1992 but a vociferous local campaign led to a renovation, at a cost of £3.4 million, and Grade II Listed Building status in 1998.[1] The facility re-opened to the public in 2005.[2][3][4] During refurbishment the three tidal pools, pontoons and diving boards were all removed or filled in.

A lift and hoist were added in 2009 for disabled access.

"Take me to your lido; Nothing beats diving into cool sparkling water on a hot summer day. Here, three friends set out on a mini tour of outdoor pools". The Guardian. Alongside the ring of bright lido water pushing into the grey sea are several smaller, unregulated pools and rickety diving platforms... It had a stunning view: a turn of the head took you from the chopping sea to the clarity of the pool; a lift of the chin took your eye from the blue water to the blooming of "Plymouth" written in municipal bedding plants on the hill above. ^ "10 seawater pools". The Guardian. 14 July 2007. This beautiful 1930s colonnaded structure below Hoe Road reopened in 2003 after years of neglect and local government wranglings. The huge, semi-circular, art deco-inspired pool uses treated seawater and is open for a cooling dip from May to September. Plus there are three tidal pools built into the rocks next door, with high diving boards to boot.
