Greenbank Pool, located in the heart of Street, Somerset, is a much-loved outdoor swimming facility with a rich history and a range of amenities for visitors. Commissioned by Bancroft Clark, following the wishes of Alice Clark, the pool was opened on April 30, 1937, to provide swimming facilities to the residents of Street, especially women and children. The Art Deco design of Greenbank Pool adds to its unique charm and appeal.

It operates as a charity managed by trustees and is supported by grants from Street Parish Council, a trust fund left by Alice Clark, and the patronage of its visitors.
