Cook and Phillip Park.
Indoors, always clean, bit busy though and weekends can be annoying with so many kids around. The spa is good.

My favorite pool is the Boy Charlton, I used to swim there. I like the one in North Sydney too and the beach pools at Manly and Bondi.

Sydney has great beaches and some fantastic swimming pools.

Caringbah pool. It has lots of learn to swim classes from bubs to adults, all the year around. Its outdoor but heated. My coach, Sandy, loves her job and it shows through her teaching. Regards Yasmin

I've been to many of the ones you listed, but my personal favourites have always been the Olympic pool at the University of New South Wales (it was seriously destiny that I went there, I used to swim there when I was maybe eight years old). Another good one is at Maroubra, I think it was called Wiley baths or something. It may have had a name change since then. The Sydney Aquatic Centre was fun when I was a young one too! The baths at Coogee Beach are great but given the open nature of beach pools, they feel a little less safe for me. Happy swimming guys!

Parramatta War Memorial Swimming Pool - it has great waterslides and the outdoor dive towers are always fun!
