The St Georges Park Swimming Pool next to the St Georges Park Cricket Stadium was opened on 12 November 1937. The opening of the pool was celebrated with a performance of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night Dream" and was said to be one of the most beautiful and modern baths in South Africa at the time. The complex has a Olympic sized swimming pool, a kiddies pool and a grand stand with seating for 1080 people. The well knows South African playwright Athol Fugard's play "Master Harold and the Boys" takes place in the tea room at the swimming pool. Unfortunately the tea room has been closed for many years now. Even more unfortunate is the fact the the swimming pool is currently closed due to the water restrictions that we have in the city due to the drought in the catchment areas.
