COVID-19 Update 

From Wednesday 20 May, Glenbrook Swim Centre will reopen to the public, with restrictions and changed opening hours.

All other Leisure Centres and pools remain closed at this stage.

Glenbrook Swim Centre will be open 6-11am Monday to Friday, and 8am-11am Saturday and Sunday. 

Strict rules will be in place, in line with the NSW Government restrictions, and to keep the community and Council staff safe.

Why aren’t the other pools and centres reopening?
At this stage only outdoor pools are permitted to reopen, and the Glenbrook Swim Centre is the only outdoor pool normally scheduled to be open in May, as the other outdoor pools at Katoomba, Lawson and Blackheath are seasonal.

The Leisure Centres team are looking forward to the release of the stage 2 details from the NSW Government, and are hopeful that the Katoomba and Springwood indoor pools may be able to reopen during that phase. Council will provide regular updates to the community, via the Council website, local media, and social media, as changes occur and more services reopen.


We have suspended all memberships for the duration of the closure. That means you won’t be charged while we’re closed, and your membership will be automatically reinstated once we are able to reopen.
