Lane hire and group bookings

Marion Outdoor Pool is frequently utilised for our lovely grounds and state of the art facility, with friendly and highly trained staff to make your event memorable.

Over 100 local schools enjoyed the facility during our past season for lessons, swimming carnivals, end-of-term and holiday activities. Sport and community organisations use our facility to celebrate their achievements during the year. Our regular clubs reserve lane space for training and keeping fit multiple times each week.

Whether you would like to reserve a lane for a once-off occasion, hold your event here or for regular training - talk to us to see what options we can offer.
