Petersham Pool re-opens for the summer season

As local Insey informed me, Petersham Pool (Fanny Durack Aquatic Centre) re-opened last weekend. It appears that the redevelopment that was meant to be carried out over winter has been postponed.

A life guard at the pool said Marrickville Council has put the plans back a year. So for all us locals who are quite fond of our daggy, patched-up pool in the park, it’s good news.

The 33-metre pool is a warm 28 C at the moment. You can swim from 6.30am to 7pm Monday to Saturday and from 8am-6pm on Sundays. Hope to see some of the regulars back there including Lu, long-time Petersham resident and patron of the pool.
