Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Lions Pool at Stratford (Stratford)

Family Tested
High energy

Lion's share

If you visit Stratford with kids during the summer, you've got to add a visit to Lions Pool to help them spend some energy after the car ride and before the 2 hours of seating-quietly-during-the-play in the evening. You'll find it across the bridge from the Information Centre on York Street, the prettiest block in town. Last time I visited, they only had the long pool but they now offer a waterplay area including a water umbrella, spraying palm trees, shooting streams, and small dumping buckets. Make sure you take in the view of the bridge and surrounding stone buildings for a glimpse of England. (More about Stratford Festival.)

At Stratford’ your family can have it all: play and water play
