Down in Dapto we have another sweet, old-style ‘heated’ open-air pool. Featuring a 50m pool and a toddler’s pool. This pool is open all year round, but it gets mighty chilly in colder seasons (think 12 degrees chilly.) It’s a lovely setting, with mature palm trees and views of the escarpment. Usually only half the pool gets roped for lap swimmers, so you might have to share.
The very shallow toddler’s pool is large and sunny. The facility also has an access lift into the big pool and a small kiosk, which is not always open.
Seems to be a bit of a mix of people who come to this pool, only a few serious swimmers.
Timed warm showers are available in the large changing rooms.
Located off Bangaroo Ave, Dapto. Plenty of parking. Unfortunately this spot is a bit of a walk from the closest bus stop, so not easily accessible by public transport.
While historically free, this pool has required a small entrance fee since 2015.
