Kids and parents in pool

There are nine swimming pools and a number of indoor sports centres across the Toowoomba Region.

Visit one of our pools to cool off, relax, enjoy water play, swim laps, attend a fitness class, learn to swim, improve your swim stroke or join a swimming club.

Facilities below are owned by Council and managed by private operators who can assist with further information and activities offered. Pool facilities differ between venues and pool open hours may vary between seasons. 

All Council pools honour the Queensland Government Companion Card, allowing free entry for anyone accompanying a person with a disability who requires attendant care support. Council endorses the Royal Life Saving Society's Keep Watch program which aims to prevent children drowning.
