Coogee, Ross Jones Memorial Pool

The Ross Jones Memorial Pool is located next to the Surf Life Saving Club at Coogee Beach, in the eastern suburb of Coogee. It was built in 1947 and the National Trust has observed that the pool is significant due to the unique design, which includes concrete piers that extend above the wall resembling turrets at the top of a sandcastle. It is named in honour of Roscoe Samuel Jones, a Randwick Council Alderman and President of the Coogee Surf Life Saving Club.

    1. The reflection is a bit tricky today. It's in the corner where the kids are about to jump in the pool. ;)

  2. These pools always seem such a safer option for the younger ones.
