Upgrading the Carnegie Memorial Pool

An Albanese Labor Government will rebuild the much-loved Carnegie Memorial Pool, building a contemporary community aquatic facility ready to serve the community for generations to come.

As locals know, the Carnegie Memorial Pool has been closed since November 2020, when a catastrophic leak was identified as causing the loss of over 150,000 litres of water each day.

Given the significant cost of repairs and the deteriorated state of the 55-year-old facility, the pool has since been unable to reopen.

By partnering with the Glen Eira City Council, an Albanese Labor Government will invest $15 million to help bring a new and improved pool to the local community.

This new facility will include:

  • An outdoor 50 metre pool and dive pool
  • Indoor warm pater program pool and learn-to-swim pool
  • Sauna, steam room and spa
  • CafĂ©
  • Splash pool
  • BBQ and shaded seating
  • And indoor dry rooms for community services.

Importantly, the new facility will be accessible to the whole community.

Only an Albanese Labor Government will invest in the facilities the Glen Eira community deserves.
