A lovely swimming centre with excellent facilities. I love being able to lie on the lawn under the gum trees. Lots of fun for all ages. Highly recommended!

This is one of the best pools I remember as a child. But do not bother going as it is under a make over and was not open. The parklands surrounding the Burnside Swimming Centre are beautiful. You can always find plenty of shade and a well maintained lawn to have a family picnic.

As a citizen of northern Australia, I can say with authority that Adelaide generally does pools poorly. Too short, indoors, poor upkeep, too scarce.. Well, here's the exception that proves the rule! Awesome 50m outdoor, koalas in the trees, friendly staff, great grounds. Travel across the city for this one!

like this place, convenient,great surroundings. Easy to get to, should be open longer in the year though. Quite clean and you can still find quiet corners there.

Brilliant outdoor pool with excellent facilities. Well defined lanes - fast, medium, slow - for lap swimming, as well as area for general swimming, and polls for children. Excellent sauna and spa. Food available. Beautiful lawns and trees and parrots. Well supervised.

A great open air pool in parkland surroundings with other amenities nearby. Sometimes very crowded and more expensive than other venues.
