Council Invests $350,000 in Drummoyne Pool

Message from Angelo Tsirekas, Mayor City of Canada Bay Council

The City of Canada Bay is investing a total of $350,000 during 2017/18 at the Drummoyne Swimming Centre to ensure the facility continues to meet the needs of all of our customers.

A number of upgrades are already complete, including:

  • New glass fence opening up views to the harbour;
  • New grassed area;
  • Installation of shade sails;
  • Painting throughout the facility, including the bottom of the pool; and
  • New stairwell balustrades.

In addition, new lockers and an accessible pool hoist will be installed in the coming weeks.

At the completion of the current season (1 May 2018), $250,000 will be spent on refurbishing the male, female, accessible and family changing rooms on level one.

To ensure the new changing rooms meet the needs of all of our users, I invite you to have your say by completing this survey:
