The Robertson Swimming Pool will once again welcome hundreds of visitors during this predicted very hot summer season. The pool provides a large lawn space to relax and enjoy picnics as well as seven braai spots to use on a first-come, first-serve basis. It is important to note that the pool can reach its full capacity of 850 swimmers at any given time. So rather be an early bird to avoid disappointment. Daily operational hours are from 10:00 to 18:00 on Mondays to Saturdays, and from 12:00 to 18:00 on Sundays. The current daily entrance fee is R29 per adult and R19 per child. Also available are season tickets at R398 and monthly tickets at R235.

Security guards have been appointed to ensure the safety of visitors over weekends and holidays, but use of the swimming pool area is at one’s own risk. To have fun and be safe, we advise visitors who are eager to relax at the poolside to familiarize themselves with the deep levels of the pool and rules of the facility. Kindly note that only people wearing swimming costumes will be allowed into the pool. Nobody will be allowed to swim in clothes, jeans, T-shirts or underwear.
