A favourite spot for eastern suburbs families on days when the local beach does not appeal. The outdoor pools are set in a spacious grassy area with shaded picnic tables and BBQs and plenty of space for kids to charge around.
The renovated and new pools have given this centre a new lease of life and the gym facilities are good. Memberships all include swimming and there are lessons and squads for all ages.
