Ruislip Lido

Ruislip Lido, a 60-acre lake with sandy beaches and a narrow gauge railway around it, is set on the edge of Ruislip Woods.

Ruislip Lido

Whilst it remains the position of Hillingdon Council to keep its award winning parks and open spaces open to the public for the benefit of the health and wellbeing of our residents of all ages, we can only do so if government guidelines relating to social distancing are followed. 

Given the number and size of our parks and open spaces the police simply do not have the resources to deal with those putting others at risk by not abiding by the guidance.

Accordingly, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the beach at Ruislip Lido in response to visitors not adhering to social distancing guidelines at the site.

Please note that all play equipment is positioned on the beach and will not be accessible as long as the beach is closed.

Whilst we wanted to keep the beach open for recreation in line with government guidance, and are aware that many residents are sticking to guidelines, we have decided to close and fence off the beach in the interest of public safety.  

This decision will be kept under review. 

Toilets are available off Willow Lawn Car Park between 10am and 6pm.
