More Information

The Swimming Pool Building, also known as the Joyce Fromson Pool, was the first structure of the Frank Kennedy Centre complex to be constructed. It is the only building of the complex to be faced completely in rough-hewn, random-patterned Tyndall stone. The swimming pool measures 50 x 122 ft. and is enclosed in a clear span structure. The building has thick outward-sloping walls and a full window-wall facing east, which allow access to an adjacent garden area.
