Claremont Aquatic Centre is a unique Perth aquatic centre being one of the few that is all outdoors and it is actually heated through a geothermal heating system that heats the pool to 28deg in winter. That means that Claremont Aquatic Centre is a great place to swim all year round.
There are two outdoor pools the first is only .95m deep and is used for walking lanes, but also have a free swim area. This pool is perfect for preschoolers as they can stand and you can do some walking up and down while you supervise them. This pool is pictured above on one of the Claremont Aquatic Centre Family Days, which we highly recommend you check out. Normal entry fees apply but they have lots of inflatables to enjoy too. These events are usually listed on the Claremont Aquatic Centre home page (link below). The main pool is an 8 lane 50 meter pool with diving pool section.
In January 2020 a new splash pad water playground was opened. It includes jet sprays; channels with pumps, wheels and gates; and a 1000 litre mega bucket water dump. Image below is an artist impression we will update this review shortly with some photos.
There is a fantastic cafe at Claremont Aquatic Centre and it's not just your average pool side kiosk. It's called Bilby by the Pool and is run by the Bilby's Burgers which you can find just down the road. Of course you can bring along your own packed lunch, bbq or snacks to enjoy on the grassed area too.
Claremont Aquatic Centre is perfect if you want to enjoy an outdoor swimming experience. There are lots of shaded areas to enjoy a picnic and laze around by the pool, and the shaded toddler pool and small playground make this a great place to meet with friends on a warm day.
