The area has an air of neglect about it. The 'pool' is a stagnant body of murky water which had a slick of oily stuff on it & algae just under the surface. It certainly didn't look like a place to swim...in fact I would...More

This pool has been neglected for what it seems ages. I was scared to breathe around it yet alone even consider taking a dip. Bring your decontamination suits if you plan to swim. Remember the aeroguard or Rid as it is a breeding ground for...More

This brings back so many childhood memories. As a young child, with my cousins and friends, I would spend hours frolicking and playing in this old mining pond which had become the local swimming hole. No flash tiling or chlorine, just good old fashioned rock...More

Not easy to find but it is nice and quiet. The name is somewhat deceptive as you wouldn't come here thinking that you'll take a quick dip to cool off as the water is quite murky and there are signs advising against swimming here.

It wasn't easy to find - we couldn't see any signs to it on the main road. We headed down Sixth Street (opposite Rubens) and towards the bottom of the street we found signs leading to the pool. The pool is a dammed up part...More

Nice relaxing short walks. We struggled to find some map but at the end it was self explanatory. Very civilized with a nice little café at he end.

Hepburn Pool is a forgotten treasure which many visitors to Hepburn Springs would never be aware of. The owners of the Bellinzona Grange hotel explained that it was once the hotel pool and was built in the 1930's. You can find it behind this hotel,...More
