If you're stuck in the inner west on a hot day & don't want to fight Cleveland st, hit Victoria Park Pool to beat the heat.

The pol gets super busy on weekends, but get in early to grab some of the grassed area & spend the morning with a snack from the cafe after your swim.

Its central location means that there are plenty of public transport options nearby, and entry is around the $5 mark, making it a cheap outing! There's also a splash pool for toddlers to keep the little ones cool.
