Council has completed the bulk of upgrades to amenities at the iconic, heritage-listed Grant McBride Baths at The Entrance, with further upgrades scheduled to take place over the coming months.

The changerooms and public toilets have received a refresh, while a new parents room has been installed.

Central Coast Council Director Community and Recreation Services, Melanie Smith said the upgrade has helped refresh the facilities and comply with accessibility standards.

“The Grant McBride Baths is a much-loved local spot which provides a space for locals and visitors to get active outdoors while connecting with other members of the community,” Ms Smith said.

“These upgrades provide a refresh of the existing facilities and improve accessibility to the changeroom and public toilets, making them available for use to the whole community.”

Further works at Grant McBride Baths are planned to occur later this year, including a replacement of the roof and eaves of the hall adjacent to the baths, the connection of hot water to the hall and one shower in each of the male and female changerooms and replacement of safety fencing.

Council Administrator, Rik Hart said investing in this historical venue provides value for the Central Coast community.

“The iconic Grant McBride Baths are positioned along the pristine coastline at The Entrance and has long been a popular swimming spot for locals and visitors to the Central Coast,” Mr Hart said.

“First constructed in 1938, these ocean pools are rich with local history and make up an important part of the social fabric of The Entrance.”

The ocean pools are free to use and open year-round (subject to maintenance and cleaning) and supervised with various patrolled hours throughout the season.
