When it is time to a dip, pack up your picnic rug, some lunch and your swimming gear and headed to Croydon Memorial Pool - the outdoor one. Three basic outdoor swimming pools that has ALWAYS been there! The Big sized pool - full 50m olympic length pool. The Medium sized pool - 20m learners pool perfect for primary aged. And the baby sized pool - the toddler paddling pool! What Mamma loves the best are the shade sales. They cover all of the toddler and the learner's pool plus added shade to sit under as well. Both of the junior pools are separate which prevents the big kids to overspill and add waves for the toddlers. At 15 months Bubs could stand in all sections of the pool and it dips and gets a little deeper in the middle in this pool. My tip for the mammas - don't wear your best bather bottoms or add some boardies to your pool attire. The pool floor is a little scratchy (great for little feet to grip) and will not be so gentle on your lycra!
Mamma's special mention: On days over 30º you might even get lucky and the inflatables will pop up! The Croydon Memorial Pool is one of three aquatic centres in the Maroondah Leisure Facilities. Aquahub just over the other side of Mount Dandenong Road and Aquanation in Ringwood.
