Enmore Park, Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre, Petty Cash Cafe
This is a lovely big space with a great range of brand new equipment for most ages making sure there are enough swinging, bouncing, climbing and jumping activities for even the most active kids. New seating and rest areas for families have also been recently installed. The old rocket slide is still there (which looks like a lot of fun), but can be a bit tricky for the smaller kids to use as the only way up is a ladder tricky for the 3 and unders to climb. Shade sails make this one ideal for warmer weather.
There are also great pathways where the kids can scooter or ride their bikes, large grassy areas to kick a ball around, shady trees for a group catch up on a picnic rug, and the ever popular Magic Yellow Bus visits this park each Thursday at 9.30am to 12.30pm. Petty Cash Cafe is just across the road and serves great food or coffee.
Plenty of parking, a playgroup building, and toilets (which are unfortunately regularly locked).
Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre
The recently renovated Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre, also known as Enmore Pool, is definitely a huge improvement.
New facilities include a 50m, 8 Lane Swimming Pool catering for lap swimmers, squads, swimming carnivals or simply the perfect place to cool off on a hot day. Dedicated Programs Pool / Hydrotherapy set up for learn-to-swim lessons, aquaerobics classes, safe family swimming and rehabilitation activities - this pool is very warm. A baby/toddler Leisure Pool suited to the teeny tinies.
It is all indoor, however large glass windows are around the area which have been open each time we have visited letting in fresh air and a slight breeze.
A lovely family friendly cafe is attached to the pool, with seating accessible on a grassy area from inside the pool, and cafe style booth and tables and chairs (including high chairs) from outside the pool.
They also have a 'Wellness Centre', Aqua Aerobics, and a creche for those with gym memberships!
There are also baby change stations, a few family change rooms, and showers a plenty! All new - very clean and fresh.
Great public swimming pool for the whole family. Can get a little noisy (and during peak times a little crowded) inside, but the facilities certainly make up for it.
Petty Cash Cafe
Directly across from Enmore Park is the lovely Petty Cash Cafe. Great for a take-away coffee or a meal while the kids play in the park, or grab a snack and eat in. They also have picnic rugs, and bring your food over to the park if you'd prefer to have a leisurely meal in the sun! Kids are welcome inside the cafe however if you have a pram, due to OH&S, they only allow a maximum of three prams inside at any one time. Lovely friendly staff, very popular with the locals on weekends.
