A new indoor swimming pool is planned for the Linwood-Woolston community, which is expected to open in late 2021.

A high profile location on the corner of Linwood Avenue and Smith Street has been chosen as the site for the planned Linwood pool.

The facility will be built at 141 Smith Street, which is on a section next to Linwood Park that faces onto Linwood Avenue.

The location was finalised by the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community on 16 May after extensive community consultation on possible locations for the planned new pool facility. Read more on Newsline.(external link)

(external link)The next step is for the Council to produce a concept design that will show how the facility looks and what it features. This design will be developed with feedback and input from the wider community and key stakeholders, including Linwood Rugby League and South Brighton Tennis Club. This process will begin later in 2018.
