Coburg Olympic Pool, secret oasis of the north, is now open for the summer season. The plantings of succulents out the front are doing well and suit the retro frontage of the pool. Grab your bathers and tell your friends to meet you under the peppercorn trees!
Upcoming events include a free event celebrating the start of the season on Sunday 13th, 11-6pm - the inflatables will be out. A pool party with bands is being planned for mid January, in partnership with the Friends of Coburg Olympic Pool.
Last year there was a big jump in attendances for the season (15 000) even though the pool had been closed for two years. Let’s build on the success of the community in getting the pool re-opened, and make the most of our lovely creekside pool and picnic area this season.
See you in the lap lane!
