Yeronga Park Memorial Pool, in Brisbane’s inner south, has something for every Brisbane family, whether you’re keen squad swimmers or just want to cool down with the family as the mercury rises.
Yeronga has four different pools catering to a range of swimming abilities. Younger kids can learn to swim in the covered, heated pool with baby change tables adjacent, or splash around in the partially covered wading pool with mushrooms. There’s also a selection of toys on the lawn for dry land fun. If you want to swim while your little Brisbane kids play, there is a child-minding service available most mornings for a small fee (byo morning tea). If they still aren’t played out by the time you leave, there’s a playground right next door at Yeronga Park.
Older kids and adults have a choice of 50m and 25m pools, both of which are heated in winter. Swim squad and triathlete training will help keep you and your kids fit, or there are gazebos and lawns with a coffee shop if a lazy day by the pool is more your speed.

Keep Watch Pool Safety Program at Brisbane City Council Pools
Brisbane City Council public pools are part of the Keep Watch pool safety program established by the Royal Life Saving Society of Australia. This program aims to prevent childhood drownings by setting out these guidelines –
0-5 year olds & non-swimmers – Parent or guardian within arms’ reach and present in the water at all times.
6-10 year olds – Parent or guardian showing constant active supervision and prepared to get wet and enter the water when necessary.
11-14 year olds – Parent or guardian present to regularly and physically check on the child.
By enforcing these guidelines, Brisbane City Council hopes to prevent all drowning incidents at council pools.
Yeronga Park Memorial Pool is located at 81 School Road, Yeronga.
