Help improve accessible swimming at Dawn Fraser Baths

Council is working on improving accessible swimming at the much-loved Dawn Fraser Baths in Birchgrove. We're planning for the future and looking at ways to enhance the overall accessible experience at the baths as well as seeking feedback on design concepts for a new accessibility ramp.

There are two ways you can share your ideas and join our Community Conversation:

1. In person:

Saturday, 12 March 2022, 9:30-11:30am

Dawn Fraser Baths (at grade entry via lower carpark and boardwalk).

Please note: Limited Parking available.

2. Register to have a one-to-one discussion with a Council employee over the phone or via MS Teams at a time that's convenient for you.

To receive information or provide feedback in another format, call us Monday to Friday, 9am-4pm via free community services. You will need to provide the project lead's phone number: 02 9392 5971.

What happens with the feedback I provide?

The information Council received in these Community Conversations and input from Council's Access Advisory Committee, will be used to help finalise the design for the new accessibility ramp. Suggestions for longer-term accessibility improvements are to be included, where possible, in an accessibility audit of the facility.
