The newly renovated bathrooms at Drummoyne Pool are looking great!
A big thank you to the City of Canada Bay Council for upgrading our facilities over the Winter break, including the installation of new diving blocks.
Only two weeks to go until we dip our toes back in the water and make use of the new changing rooms to freshen up.
Visit the Drummoyne Swimming Centre site below for more photos of the new bathrooms.
Thanks to the support of the City of Canada Bay Council and the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Grants Program we are pleased to announce that brand new start blocks have been installed at Drummoyne Pool for our Club.
The Swimming Centre’s bathroom amenities have also been completely renovated. They look amazing and are on track for completion by 1st September 2018, when Drummoyne Pool opens for the 2018/19 season!

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 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.
