Okay Canberra, apparently Summer is here. November may not have felt like it was leading up to it, but it’s true. December has arrived and it’s bound to get hot soon enough. If that is the case then things will be heating up soon and we need somewhere to cool off.

Previously, I checked out the best rivers and lakes that nature had to offer, but where do you like to go for some casual laps of the pool? Or leave the kids to play in the cool shallows?

To vote, let me know your favourite swimming pool in the comments below. I’ll visit the two most popular and decide the verdict in next week’s article.

What’s Your opinion?

Dickson Pool is my favourite, 3 different sized pools, spray park for the kids, bbq facilities, beach volleyball court and beautiful grounds with lots of lawn space and large shade trees.

Any clean pool under cover, out of the sun, and with good showers and changing rooms, is my favourite.

Canberra Olympic Pool is a treasure. Shame that the ACT Government has been doing its best to let it run down so it can sell the land – despite all their rhetoric about spending money to fix a leak. They could put in a brand new 50metre outdoor pool there if they had some sense – there is plenty of space for that.
