My favourite place in Hertfordshire is Letchworth Swimming Pool. Letchworth Swimming Pool is located in Norton Common opposite the childrens play area. It is open from late May to early September.

I meet my friends and family there for a swim and Letchworth Swimming Club, which I am part of, meet there in the summer when it opens (instead of staying at Letchworth lesuire centre all summer). I spend a lot of time there for a club or just to have fun and a mess about in the pool.

The swimming pool is a 50m pool with a baby pool next to it. There is also a shop and single sex changing rooms.

Letchworth is very lucky to have an outdoor pool especially a 50m. Some larger towns don’t have an outdoor one, they just have an indoor one, which isn’t that nice to go in when it’s summer. The pool used to be where the rose gardens now are.

That is why Letchworth outdoor Swimming pool is my favourite place in Hertforshire.
