Fitzroy Swimming Pool

Fitzroy Pool is Melbourne's iconic 50-metre outdoor heated pool. Our pool is a favourite summer playground for all Melbournians.

We also have an outdoor toddler pool and a spa, sauna and steam room. Fitzroy's facilities also include a gym and group fitness studio.

In the 1990s, amazing community activism saved the pool from closure. Our famous Aqua Profonda sign is heritage listed, honouring our multicultural history.
