Life with kids in Sydney City
Set on Woolloomooloo Bay near the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool has breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour.
Our 50-metre outdoor pool is perfect for lap swimming. It has 8 lanes and ranges in depth from 1.2 to 2 metres. The pool is heated from 1 September to 30 April and filled with chemically treated salt water.
The smaller (20 metre) pool is 1 metre deep throughout and perfect for those who are learning to swim or just want to have fun. It is heated to 28ºC and also contains chemically treated salt water. This pool has a shade cover to protect your skin from the sun.
There are seats on a shaded terrace, daybeds and a licensed café with outdoor deck area.
