Wading Pool at Wynnum


During the great Depression in the early 1900's one of the major projects to get employment and income for desperate families, the government funded the construction of the Wynnum Wading Pool, which has been a popular place for children to play in the water especially during our hot summers.

As part of the $12 million upgrade of the Wynnum Manly foreshore the Wading Pool is being renovated, and water will be drawn in from the bay - but from some distance away from the shore, to keep the water cleaner.

Sadly the pool will not be ready until some time in 2008 - which has upset the locals and holiday makers that enjoy the bay area.
