Pool Closed for 2020 Season
Dear Pool Users,
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic we have had to take the difficult decision to keep Greenbank Pool closed for the 2020 season.
We look forward to welcoming you back in 2021.
Thank you for your continued support.
The Greenbank Pool Team.

the entrance and office. You'll need a pound coin, returned when

In the Children’s Pool: Children with or without swim aids who cannot stand in the deepest part of the pool and remain within their depth must be accompanied in the pool with an adult. At the discretion of the lifeguard a child may be asked to undertake a height depth test to verify if they can or cannot be in the children’s pool unaccompanied.
In the Main Pool: Children under 8 and non or weak swimmers must be accompanied in the water by an adult and are not permitted in the deep end of the pool.
At the discretion of a lifeguard, a weak swimmer may be asked to undertake a swimming ability test to verify their ability; they must be able to swim 2 lengths/60m non-stop, using front crawl, breaststroke or both with reasonable techiniques, without using doggy paddle.
Water Safety Advice: Swimmers will be instructed to use the area of the pool they are safe in. Patrons must obey any safety advice given by the lifeguards and staff.

You are permitted to smoke within the ground but not near or in any buildings, within the changing rooms or under partially under covered areas. However, we do ask that you are considerate of the people around you and be aware of drifting smoke. Whenever possible please move to a quiet, unoccupied part of the pool grounds.
Please note that summer parking charges begin from the date of Greenbank Pool opening.
The seasonal parking permit from Mendip DC is great value if you intend to use the Greenbank car park often and for short periods.
There are more than 1300 parking spaces in Street with 50 dedicated blue badge spaces. Please note that there is only one blue badge parking bay in Greenbank Pools grounds.
The furthest car park within Street is an 8 minute flat walk away from the pool (according to Google maps). Please, wherever possible, use these official car parks rather than on street parking and respect the pools neighbours.
We would also encourage as many of our visitors to walk or cycle to the pool, especially if living locally or on particularly hot or busy days.
A seasonal parking permit is available from Mendip District Council. Please call them on 0300 303 8588 or read through the information HERE.
We would encourage all regular visitors that drive to Greenbank Pool to purchase a seasonal parking ticket for the best possible value.
Greenbank Pool is a listed building and there is only limited access for wheelchairs to the pool at the rear entrance to the pool. Please note there is no disabled parking in this area as it is a private road. Special floatation devices designed for disabled swimmers are permitted however large inflatables are not allowed. Disabled changing facilities are also provided including a seated shower and an assistance alarm.
There is currently one blue badge parking space in the Greenbank Pool car park but others are available in Streets other car parks.

NEED TO KNOW!
The Oasis shop opens one hour after the pool opens and closes at 6pm every day. Purchases can only be made with CASH. Our on site shop sells hot and cold beverages, confectionery and ice creams.

Following the wishes of Alice Clark, Greenbank Pool was commissioned by her nephew Bancroft Clark to provide swimming facilities to the residents of Street, particularly to women and children, as men were inclined to swim naked in the River Brue.
Since opening on the 30th of April 1937, over four and a half million people have come and enjoyed Greenbank Pool and the pool welcomes many new customers each year.
As a registered charity Greenbank Pool continues to open each season thanks to a gratefully received grant from Street Parish Council, a trust fund left by Alice Clark and of course the thousands of visitors who visit the pool each year.
A full history of Greenbank can be read on History boards located in the social room.
