I have visited this pool for many years and I love the vibe. An oasis of pristine art deco serenity run by lovely friendly folk. Gorgeous leafy trees to laze underneath in park like surrounds for summer afternoons with the family. A Canberra treasure.

Forget council 'splash parks', wet'n'wild, wave machines and the luxury of a roof, THIS is how they swam for exercise or simply cooled off years ago. This lovely heritage listed and protected 30m/6 lane/4'-9' deep, open air pool with it's wooden benches, old-fashioned changerooms (no family rooms) and beautiful lawns is just so relaxing. Water temp might be a bit invigorating in the mornings for some - and the pool edge is above the water so a bit more challenging to get out so be 'strategic' with your swim and exit via the steps. There's a newer kiddies pool outside the walls of the main pool and a food kiosk too. Relaxed.

Manuka pool frames my life in Canberra. Slip into the water and relax. Do backstroke and look at the trees, birds, hot air balloons and planes flying to Sydney and Melbourne.
A nice community place.

We come for the toddler pool and stay for the lovely relaxed surrounds. Entry is very reasonable - $5.50 for an adult - and there's plenty of shade. The toddler pool is amazing and covered by shade cloth. The main pool is great too.

Great pool, but it's time to come forward out of the Stone Age. Having cash only with no eftpos nearby is very inconvenient.
