Braidwood Memorial Swimming PoolPrint Page Print this page

Braidwood Memorial Swimming Pool commemorates those who served in World War Two.

In March 1958 a meeting was called by the Chamber of Commerce to consider the construction of a swimming pool. There was concern about the number of drownings in local streams and it was thought there ought to be a place where children could be taught to swim. The Servicemen's Club advanced a loan of £5,400 which, with the money already collected, was sufficient to begin construction in September 1963. It was opened for use in January 1965 and dedicated as a memorial to all who served in the 1939-1945 war on 5 February 1966.  The unveiling ceremony was performed by the Hon. P.H. Morton.
