Chandler Aquatic Centre (Old Cleveland Road, Chandler) was the site for the 1982 Commonwealth Games, so expect Olympic sized swimming pools and diving facilities, as well as a children's pool with slide, dive in discos, swimming lessons and aqua aerobic classes, a shop and cafe and child minding, all in an indoors venue.
Newmarket Pool (71 Alderson Street, Newmarket) is a family friendly venue that offers barbeque facilities, picnic area and children's playground on top of the extensive swimming options. There's a shaded pool for babies and toddlers, a pool with slides and waterfall caves for older children, a 50 metre lap pool and indoor heated pool. Entry is $4.50 for adults and $3.20 for children.
The Plantation (1204 New Cleveland Road, Gumdale) is another family friend venue with barbeque and picnic areas, tennis courts, beach volleyball courts and lifesaver training programs. The three swimming pools include a shallow pool for younger children, water park with slides and waterfalls and twenty-five metre lap pool. Entry is $5.00 for adults and $3.80 for children.
Keep cool this summer with a trip to your local swimming pool.
What is that other swimming pool called in Underwood? I used to go there when I was little with my brother and my mum and dad. It was so fun. There was a section for the children and it was always warm because of the water being shallow. It also had a really deep pool on the other end, which looked a bit like a swimming race one because it had black lines painted on the floor.
