Friends of Blackheath Pool & Memorial Park

Blackheath Pool & Memorial Park is our ‘fragile oasis’ at the top of the mountains. Three years of concerted community action successfully snatched Blackheath Pool from the brink of demolition. The fully renovated Pool reopened in 2006, & is gradually re-establishing its role as the heart of our community. It’s a socially inclusive space, open to all ages, allowing a comfortable mixing of adults, young people & children – an enduring symbol of peace, & the healing value of water.  

Friends of Blackheath Pool & Memorial Park have a mission to continue to protect this gem of the Mountains for the community now, & for future generations.

Blackheath Memorial Park surrounds Blackheath Pool – one of the most beautifully situated public swimming baths in Australia – set amongst sweeping lawns & mature rhododendrons, at 1065 metres above sea level in the Blue Mountains of NSW. Opened in 1931, The Memorial Park was built by the community, for the community in the years following WW1.
