Croydon Memorial Pool

Visit Croydon Memorial Pool and enjoy our outdoor swimming pools during the warmer months. The lush green lawns and a kiosk offering a variety of food and drink items, including healthy choices, make it a perfect place for the family on a summer's day.

We have 3 outdoor pools:

  • 8-lane, 50-metre pool - perfect for lap swimming and general leisure
  • Leisure pool with shade covering, warmer water and shallower depths - great for recreational swimming
  • Toddler pool with shade covering, warmer water and shallow depths - perfect for toddlers needing shallow play
    • The toddler pool will be open from December 2023

Croydon Memorial Pool has lockers available for use free-of-charge. 

Lap swimming

Lap swimming in our largest pool is a great way to improve fitness, strength and endurance, in a low-impact environment. Plus, it can also be an incredibly relaxing way to exercise!

  • 8-lane, 50-metre pool
  • Lane availability print out available at Customer Service

Lap lane etiquette:

  • Always swim to the left, to allow others to pass
  • Always enter the water feet first
  • Always start, turn and stop at the wall
  • Be aware of the lap lane speeds and swim in an appropriate lane
  • Be mindful of other swimmers sharing your lane
  • Please follow staff direction – if asked to move to another lane, please do not be offended
  • Return equipment to its storage area
  • Select a lane based on your ability and the stroke you intend to swim
