NEW PUBLIC SPACE AND SWIM SPOT A STEP CLOSER AT BARANGAROO
A second swimming spot at Barangaroo will be investigated following the enormous popularity of Marrinawi cove, opened earlier this month by the Liberals and Nationals Government.
Nawi Cove has been earmarked as the site for a second Barangaroo swimming spot, which will also be home to a new 1.85 hectare public space in Central Barangaroo.
Minister for Infrastructure, Cities and Active Transport Rob Stokes said Infrastructure NSW would complete appropriate studies as part of the scoping of the project, which is now underway.
“Thousands of people have embraced the new swimming enclosure at Marrinawi Cove in recent weeks and we want to offer more opportunities for everyone to enjoy swimming in the heart of the city and close to public transport,” Mr Stokes said.
“Some of the options under investigation for Barangaroo’s next swimming spot include more structured facilities, so instead of swimming in the harbour itself, we may look into a floating pool similar to the Spree River in Berlin or Islands Brygge Harbour Bath in Copenhagen.”
“Nawi Cove’s position metres away from the future Barangaroo metro station would make it an accessible and central place for all people to enjoy a swim on Sydney Harbour.”
