The Blackheath pool is an unheated, seasonal, outdoor swimming centre open from the first weekend in November to the first weekend in March.
The theme of the Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park is ‘Heritage’.
This park has significant heritage value, with lovely old style sweeping lawns and well established cold climate plants. Within are many heritage items including historic sandstone ANZAC memorial steps and old-style playground equipment. A major feature is the newly installed ‘Rocket’, inspired by the original Rocket play equipment that was installed in this park in the 1962.
The park also embraces Blackheath Swimming Pool, the original form of which was built during the Great Depression in the 1930s. The modern version is still open in the warmer months.
The park is opposite Council’s Blackheath Glen Tourist Park.
This park has a wide range of play equipment, picnic tables, electric BBQs and shelters, public toilets, duck pond and a trackhead to nearby bushwalks.
Council continues to improve its four major District Parks to provide higher quality public park spaces that are more accessible, inclusive and have better quality of design and amenities.
Each of these parks will embrace a theme to create a range of experiences across the mountains that builds on each park’s current strength and setting.
To provide a healthy environment for children, all play equipment at Blue Mountains parks are now smoke free. Smoking is prohibited within 10 metres of any play equipment.
