Save Harlow Town Park Paddling Pool

This petition made change with 1,614 supporters!

It has recently been announced that Harlow Council plan to demolish all five paddling pools around the town and replace them with splash parks for use by children under the age of 12. 

We the undersigned believe that, although the splash parks are a great idea, at least one paddling pool should be retained and the splash parks built on the sites of the other four. 

The pool which should be kept is the main one in the town park, it is iconic and has been one of the most well used and popular facilities in town for decades. It is used by whole families of all ages, and it’s location in the valley makes it very easy for those parents who are not in the water with their children to supervise them.

If you ask anyone who has grown up in Harlow or raised a family here, or in my own personal case done both of these things, some of their fondest memories will be of the Town Park Paddling Pool, and it would be a terrible loss to deny future families the opportunity to make these memories too.


There aren’t many jewels left in Harlow’s crown, but the Town Park Paddling Pool is probably the biggest of those that are left, please keep it that way...

There is also a petition running on Harlow Council’s own website. Please also sign that one too and make them discuss this at full council level
