Bomaderry 50 metre pool

Bomaderry/Nowra Regional Sports Centre

A single 25 m pool is replacing the current 50 m outdoor pool & 25 m indoor pool.

Please sign the petition to have the 50 metre Bomaderry Outdoor Pool upgraded not removed.

The outdoor pool is in the fresh air, a suitable length for competitive training and school carnivals as well as providing an a venue to improve mental and physical health as well as providing supervised family fun. 

1.       Bomaderry’s temperatures are far hotter than neighbouring towns and an outdoor cold pool is ideal for summer activities and recreational swimming.

 2.      In an area where we need to provide activities for young people without having to belong to a team or train, the pool is an ideal supervised inclusion in Bomaderry.

3.      The Nowra pool is already filled to capacity and crossing the bridge is an obstacle that will not be fixed for many years. It is certainly not suitable for young children to cycle or walk across to get to the local Pool.

4.      The comparable Kiama Leisure Centre is too small will so many people training in the pool leaving little room for children and adults who just want to have fun. Kiama has two sea pools and several beaches. Bomaderry has a similar population and has no beaches or rock pools.

5.      Indoor pools are not suitable for everyone, asthma sufferers can find the air is choking with chlorine.

$60 million is a lot of money to spend on a retro progressive move. Bomaderry is going to be left with less not more.
