Whether you’re a swimmer, surfer or just looking for somewhere to relax, Sydney pools are the perfect place. The water is clean, the sun shines bright and there’s usually plenty of fellow locals to chat to. Plus, you can get some great #sydneypool photos for your Instagram feed!
A visit to a sidney pool is an experience that will be long remembered. The smell of chlorine, the mixing of cultures, the reminiscences of summers spent splashing in and out of the ocean and pool. All of these are just some of the memories that have been shared in a new book, The Memory Pool: Australian stories of summer, sun and swimming compiled by Therese Spruhan and Penelope Rossiter.
The book includes stories about some of the most famous swimming spots in Australia. Some of these include the Fig Tree Baths, where Australia’s first official competitive swimming races were held in 1846 and Mrs Biggs’ women’s baths, which was heritage listed in 1994.
While many Sydney residents love their backyard pools, there’s a growing appreciation for public swimming facilities in urban centres, especially those that cater to the needs of young families. In the last year, Sydney council has been working on the design for a new multi-million dollar public pool at Kogarah in Western Sydney. It’s hoped that the pool will be completed by 2023 and it will be the largest of its kind in the city.
However, the cost of the project has caused some concern, with the local community and some councillors worried that the budget will be exceeded. The Liberal and National parties have both pledged to fund the project, but it will be up to the state government to decide how much money it can provide.
Those thinking of building a pool should take the time to do some research before hiring a custom swimming pool contractor. A good contractor will listen carefully to their client’s ideas and will analyze their backyard to determine the best location for the new pool. They will also be able to answer any questions and address any concerns that may arise.
Finding a pool contractor who shares your aesthetic is crucial for the success of your new pool project. Look for reviews and testimonials, meet with potential contractors in person and ensure that they are Ohio certified service professionals and licensed with the registrar of contractors before making any final decisions.
