Papworth Everard play area and paddling pool


Papworth Everard has been renowned for its well-equipped children's play area and paddling pool since the 1950s. In 2010, the parish council redeveloped the play area and modernised the main equipment, assisted by a grant from a scheme administered by Cambridgeshire County Council.

The paddling pool is open throughout the school summer holidays and sometimes for a few weeks afterwards, depending on the weather.
Maintaining and monitoring the pool is an important task for which the council offers remuneration on a part-time basis. The position is sometimes vacant as the new season approaches and is open to job share. Please check the News page on this website for details of any vacancies.

The paddling pool at the children's playground is the centrepiece of this superb facility, widely recognised as one of the best in South Cambridgeshire.
