Welcome to Waterside Pool part of the Waterside Community Trust. 


We are situated next to the boating lake and the Ryde Esplanade Beach in Ryde on the Isle of Wight.


We are open all year round, seven days a week and have activities for all ages and abilities, from casual swimming to water workout classes and swimming lessons.


We are one of the only pools in the UK with a retractable roof – bringing sunshine right into your swimming session when the weather permits.



We have baby changing facilities in both the male and female changing rooms. We also have a dedicated, fully-accessible changing room right next to reception, close to the pool.


There are also hoists and chairs for those needing a helping hand. There is complete wheelchair access to the site and we also have regular bookings from disabled groups.

Safeguarding all our customers is our priority. Please follow the link to read our Water Safety Information to make sure you stay safe in the water.
