This is the home pool of long distance swimmer Susie Maroney, who is best known outside of Australia for having swum from Cuba to Florida. She broke a world record for a 24-hour swim in this pool in 1994.
The facility is often referred to as Dick Caine's Carss Park Olympic Pool in honor of its long-time swimming coach.


Facility Reviews
It's outdated and nothing special. The most prestigious and best pool in Sydney is cheaper.
It is special; it's in a beautiful bush location on Kogarah Bay; it's surrounded by colourful and well maintained gardens; the water is always clean; and the pool is very rarely crowded. I drive substantially out of my way to use this facility because it is so special.
Nice and clean it may be but, because of its age, the lanes are narrow, so that can be a challenge if you're not used to it. The change rooms are clean but - if it matters to you - old fashioned. That's OK by me and in that regard it compares well to many other facilities.
Best be there when a squad is not running because it can get a bit squishy. [April, 2014]
