Sydney's Inner West
The Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre (Enmore Pool) is located in Enmore Park and is a one-stop aquatic stop the kids will love and so will Mum!
The Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre is the recently refurbished Enmore Pool and it's now an amazing facility! It boasts an indoor, heated 50m pool, a program pool, a kids splash pool with water play features, a wellness centre, creche and a cafe!
The Centre operates a Swim School for those swimming lessons and also provides "Swim Champs" a Swim School program for people with special needs. They have a Swim Club and squad training available for both kids and adults.
The Creche is on-site and caters for children aged 8 weeks to 5 years. It allows a stay of between 1-2 hours. Fees are $400 per child per hour and bookings are essential and can be made up to a week in advance.
The Wellness Centre requires a membership but provides gym equipment access and group fitness classes.
The recently renovated Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre, also known as Enmore Pool, is definitely a huge improvement.
New facilities include a 50m, 8 Lane Swimming Pool catering for lap swimmers, squads, swimming carnivals or simply the perfect place to cool off on a hot day. Dedicated Programs Pool / Hydrotherapy set up for learn-to-swim lessons, aquaerobics classes, safe family swimming and rehabilitation activities - this pool is very warm. A baby/toddler Leisure Pool suited to the teeny tinies.
It is all indoor, however large glass windows are around the area which have been open each time we have visited letting in fresh air and a slight breeze.
A lovely family friendly cafe is attached to the pool, with seating accessible on a grassy area from inside the pool, and cafe style booth and tables and chairs (including high chairs) from outside the pool.
They also have a 'Wellness Centre', Aqua Aerobics, and a creche for those with gym memberships!
There are also baby change stations, a few family change rooms, and showers a plenty! All new - very clean and fresh.
Plenty of parking on Black Street, and all streets surrounding the swimming pool and Enmore Park.
Great public swimming pool for the whole family. Can get a little noisy (and during peak times a little crowded) inside, but the facilities certainly make up for it. The cafe food is lovely (as is the coffee), and the staff are welcoming and efficient. There is even a little toybox to occupy the kids!
