Fanny Durack Aquatic Centre, Petersham

Fanny Durack Aquatic Centre, in the tranquil surrounds of Petersham Park, is a great place to have a dip, do some laps, or just to bring your family for a day out in the sun, BBQ lunch and all!

Fanny Durack Aquatic Centre was redeveloped in 2013 and the kids facilities are better than ever!

There's a new outdoor kids splash deck and a toddler pool (all inside a childproof fence) provide heaps of entertainment for the little ones.  There is also grassed areas, seating and a shade sail so you too can relax a bit while the smaller kids enjoy some water fun.

The 25m lap pool is new and beautiful.  The 8 lane pool is outdoor and heated and primarily used for lap swimming but there is a free play area at most times of the day.  The extensive grassed areas surround the pool, there are also seating facilities, a picnic area and BBQ.

The changing facilities are new.  There is also a kiosk.

The perfect concoction of a lovely old fashioned (but new) swimming pool, big trees and an abundance of shade, a lovely grassed flat with a BBQ begging for a sausage sizzle and a family or two to enjoy it, and a kiosk that sells the same iceblocks I remember having as a kid! The toddler pool area is fully fenced, has a great shady pool, a chunk of shady grass with tables and a play area for the kids. This pool is great for the little ones too as it is compact, and safe. They also do swimming lessons for the kids!

KIDsize Living Review

I have spent many an afternoon here with my son, daughter, husband and friends. Such a relaxed swimming pool. Sometimes keeping it simple really works when entertaining the kids.
