History

New Cumnock Pool 1960's

New Cumnock Community Open-Air Swimming Pool is 1 of 3 in Scotland, and is unique in this area in that it is the only heated Clean Water open-air swimming facility in  Scotland.

 

The Pool was built in the 1960's and was recently earmarked for closure by East Ayrshire Council. New Cumnock Community Open-Air Swimming Pool Group was formed in January 2012 to take on the running of the Pool so it continues to operate and provide locals and those from further afield with a fabulous facility they can visit to swim outdoors.
 
Funding is required to upgrade the Pool facility to ensure it is suited to modern user requirements and to extend the period of opening each year and the Group are currently working hard to raise the funds necessary and ensure that the Pool achieves its full potential and continues to play an important part at the heart of the community of New Cumnock over the coming years. Please check the events page for the latest fundraising.
