You’ll find Lido Beach and pool situated on 15 acres along the Gulf of Mexico and Lido Key, a half-mile southwest of St. Armands Circle.
Its many amenities include a swimming pool, pavilion, ample parking, beach wheel- chairs, concessions, picnic facilities, a gift shop, a playground, clean, modern restrooms and a recreation building. The swim pavilion includes a 25-meter lap pool with five lanes for lap swimming.
Demolished in 1969, this wonderful communi- ty complex took the casino’s place roughly one year later.
The beach is the former site of the Lido Beach Casino, which opened in May 1940 and became a magnet for residents and visitors alike. Its design incorporated Art Deco aspects with modern and Frank Lloyd Wright accents.
The Lido Beach Pool and Pavilion is open from 10am - 4:45pm Tuesday through Sunday, weather permitting. It’s closed on Mondays, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Alcoholic beverages, food, drink and pets aren’t permit- ted inside the pool’s fenced-in area. Daily fees vary based on age; three-month seasonal and annual passes are available. For more information, call (941) 329-6181.
