Saltdean Park Road
AboutThe Saltdean Lido was opened in 1938 and is a Grade ll*listed building and is less than 5 miles east of central Brighton.
After many years of being open and used by the local community it started to fall into disrepair and the lease holder at the time put in an application to knock the Lido down and build flats.
However over the last three years a local campaign to "Save The Lido" has been successfully driven by local residents. In 2012 the group succeeded in their mission to save the building and the Saltdean Lido is now on English Heritage's At Risk Register. The next stage is to get the venue re-opened and ready for the local community and visitors to use.
To do this the newly formed Saltdean Lido Community Interest Company has been set up by the same local residents with a vision to restore the iconic art deco Lido into an all year round community and visitor attraction. If successful in applying to be the new Lease holder they plan to install heated water to the pool using renewable energy, a cafe/bar with regular events from music to comedy, an ice-skating rink during the winter months, meeting room space for corporate events and local community groups and a dedicated gym with exercise studio.
The Saltdean Lido Summer Fun Day is free to attend and there really is something for everyone! A food market, a vintage fair, dog displays from Sussex Police, a Kid's Zone , an Animal Zone and a Leisure Zone plus bar with local ales and ciders, wine tasting and live performances and entertainment all day long.
