Richmond Recreation Centre
The heart of the Richmond Recreation Centre, the 50-metre indoor heated pool is perfectly suited for lap swimming and training.
It is popular training area for professionals, recreational swimmers and school groups. In 2006, athletes competing in the Melbourne Commonwealth Games used the pool as a training ground.
Toddler and learner pools are located next to main 50-metre lap pool. These provide a safe and comfortable environment where young children and first-time swimmers can become familiar with water.
Depending on availability, school or community groups may book out the pool for carnivals, festivals or end of year celebrations. Please call the Richmond Recreation Centre, on 9205 5032, for more information about availability and pricing.
