Sandford Parks Lido (previously known as Cheltenham Lido) was completed in 1936 as part of a movement to impove the nation's health. It was heavily repaired in 1989, 1994, and 2007 and remains a popular attraction for Cheltenham and the surrouding areas offering one of very few large outdoor swimming pools in the UK.
