Corrimal War Memorial Olympic Pool Committee (1962 - 1974)

Archival Resources

A campaign to effect the construction of a swimming pool at Corrimal was initiated by the Corrimal Chamber of Commerce in 1957. On 12 December 1962 the Corrimal Area Olympic Pool Committee was registered as a charity under the NSW Charitable Collections Act (1934). The organisation’s title was altered to the Corrimal War Memorial Olympic Pool Committee in October 1963. The Committee’s objectives were the raising of finance to build a swimming pool and assisting in the raising of funds for the benefit of handicapped Ex-Service personnel. A swimming pool complex was opened in Robert Ziems Park, Corrimal on 24 February 1973.
