WATCH: Check Out The New Look Grannies Pool Lake Macquarie City Council

Good news for families who love taking their kids to popular Blacksmiths swimming spot Grannies Pool.

It's now a lot easier to access the pool area after Lake Macquarie City Council built a new pathway, which also lets visitors access the Swansea breakwall.

The carpark and access road have both been resurfaced, while there's now a new concrete viewing area overlooking the pool.

“With its calm water and stunning location, Grannies Pool has been a favourite spot for some local families for generations,” Mayor Kay Fraser said.

“Access has been challenging for some people in the past, so the improvements will enhance the amenity of the area and open up this much-loved ‘secret spot’ for all to enjoy.”
