Dickson Aquatic Centre
A popular summer spot on the north side, the Dickson Aquatic Center has everything you need to keep cool while having fun. There are three outdoor pools, shady trees, a water slide and a 50 meter heated pool. Learn to swim programs from toddlers to adults are run by qualified instructors. If you are lucky enough to have your birthday in summer, this is an ideal place to celebrate. Beach volleyball courts hire and entry fee details given on website.
some weeks they invite some band to visit, late in the afternoon. everyone is sprawled on the lawn with picnic baskets, with barbie
sold for the Vinnie programs, everyone dancing freely and kids having a great time. good meat pies at the shop, and sometimes, ducks join in the pools! buy your fruits from the shops just outside the pool, at woolies or the locals.
Its a great outdoor pool, the best in Canberra and the region. It has something for everyone, a large 50m lap swimming pool (with a small slide), a small pool for todlers and a medium sized pool for younger children.
there are Volly ball courts for hire and barbeques as well.
the suroundings are realy nice and there are lots of trees for shade.
a must go if your in canberra!
Dickson Aquatic Centre - the best swimming centre in the ACT
By A Yahoo! Contributor, 3/3/05
After trying several others, have to say Dickson Aquatic Centre is the best family pool in the ACT. Great, friendly staff, beautiful, clean pools and facilities, awesome swim school and teachers.
Best of all it is open air, meaning fresh air and sunshine and no foul chlorine smell, lots of soft green grass, shady trees and picnic tables with shade covers. Lots of space and 3 different pools for the kids to swim and play in. Even a water slide and beach volley ball courts.
The 3 pools are heated, and we love doing our lap swimming there every afternoon. The hardest part is having to go home. Go DAC � we love you!!
