   The City of Sydney is ushering in the summer season with a generous offer – free entry to several public swimming pools across the city. This initiative allows residents to beat the heat without incurring additional costs.

On Saturday, six aquatic centers in the inner city will open their doors to the public at no charge from 8 am to 3 pm. The participating sports and swimming centers are located in Camperdown (expected temperature 36°C), Ultimo (34°C), CBD (34°C), Zetland (33°C), Surry Hills (33°C), and Andrew Boy Charlton at The Domain.

Andrew Boy Charlton, situated in the heart of Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens, has recently undergone a $10 million refurbishment. It features eight heated lanes, toddler paddling pools, a sundeck with harbor views, and even offers massage therapies.

Visitors to these pools will not only enjoy free entry throughout the day but also have access to complimentary fitness classes and guidance from on-site well-being experts. The range of classes includes yoga, spin, and boot camp workouts. Additionally, each center is organizing giveaways and competitions to add to the summer festivities.

The City of Sydney encourages people of all ages and backgrounds to seize this opportunity, fostering community connections, making new friends, and prioritizing both physical and mental well-being. It's a day for everyone to come together, have fun, and enjoy the summer vibe.
