I don’t know if it’s the big trees throwing deep shadow all over the grass or the super-fun kids area with water play – or both. But Dickson Pool shouldn’t be missed over summer. Niether should Maunka Pool. Art deco architecture and Heart ice-creams at the tuck shop? What’s not to like?!

Whether you’re entertaining the kids at the pool or heading to the South Coast for a long weekend, there’s no excuse for old, dreary swimmers. Do yourself and your self-esteem a favour and splurge on a new pair.
