Botany Aquatic Centre
I've been here a few times, as my son's primary school District swimming carnivals were held here. Today we headed over there on a hot Sydney day, and had a great time.
3 pools - babies, medium, and Olympic. 2 lanes were set aside for laps, which was pretty good considering the numbr of people cooling off in the general area at peak time.
One big atttraction for the kid is the giant waterslide. ($2.55 per ride, or $6 for a half hour session) As well, there's a kiosk (chips, pies, ice creams, sandwiches and soft drinks), coin in the slot (20c) barbecues, a children's playground, and lots and lots and lots of grass and shade. The changing areas are pretty basic, but the toilets are clean (even if they have those horrible half-size doors in the Ladies'). Warm showers 20c.
Entry: Adults $3.60. Kids $2.30. Concession $2.60. Local pensioners: free
