The decline and fall of a former attraction.



Fort Regent swimming pool “a disgrace”


 Jersey News from ITV Channel Television - fort pool


One of the great "tourist attractions" of Jersey, the Fort Regent complex has been allowed to fall into disrepair and has been neglected by the States for years. My children spent hours in the pool during our frequent visits to the island and in the various exhibits and shows in the Piazza or in the amusements and crazy golf outside.

It is a disgrace verging on negligence, that the States and Fort Regent management have allowed this situation to come about. Not only have people in Jersey lost a valuable asset, but also tourism has lost an attraction which received many regular visitors.
Best of luck to Senator Lyndon Farnham. Fort Regent deserves better treatment than it has received over the past years.
