Calming all shits down. 😌 A good place to get some fresh air as well as get pissed off cos wet kids keep running and dripping onto your new jeans. But all g! Good place to jog, bad place to go for a swim. Pool was hella packed! You know what they say, pack pool equals to a tub full of urine ✌🏾 #atpeace#toomuchshittoohandle

Swimming is fantastic sport for people of all ages and abilities. Regardless of whether you’re a keen lap swimmer or just enjoy being in the water and playing with friends and family…at Star swim we pride ourselves on our sunny and enthusiastic but relaxed and private environment.
"It means different things to different people...in turns a tourist attraction; a solace; a way of coping with life; a way of experiencing nature at close quarters...a short sharp shock in the middle of winter; a way of meeting new friends; a reason for being in the city." The @guardian_uk writing about Of Soil and Water: King's Cross Pond Club, a temporary naturally filtered fresh-water public pool built on a construction site in London in 2015-2016.
Through #MelbourneDesignWeek and #OpenWaterfront we have supported programs, events and talks that invite us to reimagine our relationship with water in this city. At the River Swim event on Sunday, we discussed with Michael O’Neill, Monique Woodward, Felicity Strong and King’s Cross Pond Club designer, Marjetica Potrč, what would need to change to make #Birrarung swimmable - again.

Kennedy Town Pool | Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong | c. 1974
The Kennedy Town Swimming Pool (Chinese: 堅尼地城游泳池) is a public swimming complex in Kennedy Town, Hong Kong. There have been two pools of this name: the first opened in 1974 while the current iteration opened in 2011
Construction of the original pool began in 1971 on the former site of the Kennedy Town cattle quarantine depot on Smithfield. The $7.5 million facility was funded by the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club - a non-profit organization providing horse racing, sporting and betting entertainment in Hong Kong. At the opening ceremony in August 1974 Jockey Club steward Douglas Laing unveiled a plaque commemorating the pool
The complex comprised of two 50 metre pools, a diving pool, a spectator stand as well as smaller childrens’ pools - the pool complex was built and managed by the Urban Council and was the first public pool in Western District
The West Island Line, a scheme to extend the Island Line railway line to Western District, was gazetted in October 2007 and given final authorization in March 2009. It was decided that the terminus of the line, Kennedy Town Station, would be build at Smithfield, thus necessitating the demolition of the swimming pool
The new swimming pool complex occupies a 0.8 ha site near the Kennedy Town waterfront. It was designed by architecture firm Farrells and cost an estimated HK$671 million. The futuristic pool building is clad in zinc, while a translucent insulated membrane roofing system allows diffuse natural light to reach the indoor pool hall

Whats your idea of hell? Mine is a (tepid) public pool on a Saturday morning 👍 But swimming is Belle's favourite activity and seeing her cute little face light up when we suggest swimming is so worth facing my idea of hell 😂 We've taken her since she was 6 weeks old, and she's been learning to swim wearing a float suit. Yesterday I took out more floats and we are now down to the final 2 and she's now so close to being able to swim alone 🏊 I feel like its such an accomplishment teaching your baby a skill that they will be able to do forever 💪 Poor little Ace hasn't had quite as much focus on his extra curricular activities and is lucky if he even gets a daily bath 🙈
The plan is to get her swimming alone before our summer hols in July so umm, has anyone got a pool in their house that we can borrow?!! And yes, people thought we were weird taking a poolside pic but I got worse looks when I had to whip out my boobs mid swim to feed Ace on the edge of the pool 🙄 [ #ThisIsMothership#Swimming#publicpool#breastfeeding ]
