Welcome to the friends Of Otley Lido


Help us make a big splash!

Friends of Otley Lido - We are a community project to restore the Otley Lido in Wharfemeadows Park run solely by our volunteer committee. 


We’ve secured an exclusivity agreement with Leeds City Council to come up with a feasibility study and a business plan and are currently busy working on this.

Many specialists from near and far are helping us with our aim to bring the site (behind the hoardings) back to life. We aim to heat the lido using green energy to create a state of the art, year-round outdoor swimming and leisure facility for our community in Otley and beyond.

The former Otley Lido was a local landmark. It opened here in 1924 and was well used until its closure in 1993. There’s lots you can do to help. Get in touch via email, Twitter or Facebook and Instagram. Come and join us and HELP US MAKE A BIG SPLASH! 




There's plenty going on with the Friends of Otley lido. We have launched our online shop available here through our website or by facebook. Our products are high quality Lido branded swimming related and look sharp. Be seen to promote your support for the Otley Lido.


If you are a local business or supplier you should consider sponsoring the Otley Lido and get noticed for your support. Our Hoarding overlooking the river and in a major thoroughfair into town is an ideal way to get noticed. Professionally designed by our creative partners Zeppo Creative and printed on high quality and durable foamex  this is an opportunity for you to support your lido and get noticed.
