Cool Off at Mayfield Pool

| |

There’s lots of fun to enjoy at Mayfield Pool. It’s easy to spend a few hours here with two pools to suit different ages and swimming abilities. It’s big enough to keep kids busy but small enough not to feel crowded.

The pool was originally a gift from BHP Steelworks and serves as a valuable community venue within the larger Dangar Park.

Enjoy splashing around in the 50-metre pool. If you feel like doing laps, there are dedicated lanes to swim. Otherwise, splash around in the large free play area. Bring pool noodles and pool toys to have some fun.

For those with younger kids, spend some time in the shaded learners pool. It’s large enough to hold lots of families but shallow enough for kids to feel safe.
