The Queanbeyan War Memorial Swimming Pool (QPRC Aquatics Queanbeyan) was officially opened on Armistice Day – Saturday 11 November 1961.
The heritage listed facility originated with a seven lane, 50m pool that included diving towers and a toddler’s pool.
In 2000, the 50m outdoor pool was upsized to include eight lanes and an upgraded filtration system was installed.
Serving the community well since 1961, it was recognised in the early 2000’s that the local community needed a bigger aquatics facility. In 2004, a 25m indoor heated swimming pool was opened and then in 2018, a children’s splash park was added to the facility.
QPRC Aquatics Queanbeyan offers a range of programs and services to the local community and is home to AUSTSWIM recognised swim programs run by Queanbeyan Leagues Swim Club, Aussi Masters Swimming and Lorrae Black Swim School.
