Keen swimmers can also enjoy Hitchin and Letchworth’s outdoor swimming pools, opening on May 27.

Vaughan Watson, NHDC’s head of leisure and environmental services, said: “We currently have four fantastic free water park facilities in North Hertfordshire and two 50 meter outdoor pools, meaning that each town in the district has a facility on their doorstep. We hope local people will get out there and really take the time to enjoy them this season.”
