The Manly Harbour Pool was an icon for more than 40 years, enjoyed by millions of kids and their families until a freak storm destroyed it in 1974
Working with ecological architect, Maurice Patten, Good for Manly has come up with a vision for the transformation of Manly Cove West to include the reinstating of a Harbour Pool and boardwalk, but with a 21st century twist.
This masterplan concept has been designed to protect the sea grasses, provide access for the little penguins, allow kayakers to come and go and create an arts precinct, harbour pool and boardwalk which links the wharf to Federation Point.
We believe this new concept will transform this already special space, into a world-class area which will be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
