The former Corowa War Memorial Swimming Pool was opened on Wednesday 7th November 1956. At the time, the schools were given a half-holiday for the occasion and the NSW Governor, Sir John Northcott, cut the ribbon to open the spanking new pool.
Over the last 25 years, there has been a substantial amount of work conducted by Council to pursue the replacement of the former Corowa Swimming Pool. In May 2019, Federation Council made the decision to progress with building a 50 metre outdoor pool, 25 metre indoor pool, indoor reception, administration and café area, amenities and storage areas, and a splash park at the old Corowa Pool site located in the Ball Park Precinct next to the Council Civic Centre.
The tender to construct the new facility was awarded to Hines Construction in October 2019. The project is expected to cost up to $10.3M and is funded by Council, alongside significant contributions from the NSW State Government under various grants including Clubs NSW, Stronger Communities and Stronger Country Communities. This will be an asset not just for the community of today, but one that will meet the community's needs for the next 50 years.
