Blackpill Lido has a shallow but fairly large paddling pool. Great fun for small people. There's also a playground for small to slightly older children. No good for teens! But they can skateboard / cycle, etc along the Mumbles promenade.

Great place to take the kids. Clean and close to the ocean. A little kiosk for food and hot drinks close by with a public washroom.

Great fun for the kids to cool down and splash around in on a sunny day, just a shame they close it down September 1st regardless of the weather

What a lovely place for young children, our daughter loved it, beautiful views of Swansea Bay too! Would definitely visit this place again! Take a picnic and a blanket to sit on the grass around the lido and enjoy!

What more could you want. Splash park for children, park, ice cream parlor, café and sandy beach and all free to use. Great way to spend a few hours without spending a fortune. Saw lots of people with picnics. Grand children love this place

Great little pool here for kids and often there is a bouncy castle. The land train runs from here to Mumbles in the summer too if you want a trip along the front where the old mumbles railway used to operate!
