Work to enhance Woolwich Baths is under way.

The small harbour beach at Woolwich Baths is a popular spot for families with young children.

Hunter’s Hill Council has scheduled upgrades to make the tidal baths even more user-friendly.

Timber handrails have been repaired.

Additional work will involve replacing damaged and tightening loose deck planks and repairing piles.

Options for making the baths more accessible are also under consideration.

Council voted unanimously at a meeting on October 28, 2019, to refer Woolwich Baths to its Property Advisory Committee with a view to develop a parking scheme for the site and investigate improvements to accessibility.

The Committee has also been asked to develop: a business case for the licencing of the baths to a food and beverage provider; plans for the upgrade of built structures to accommodate a retail tenant; a plan to better manage overgrown foliage and trees on the site and; explore the provision of new sunbeds and shaded areas south of the beached area.

Mayor Mark Bennett said Hunters Hill boasted many picturesque harbour-side locations.

“Woolwich Baths is an ideal spot for the community to enjoy not only the water view but outdoor recreation too,” he said.

“We want to enhance the potential of this special spot and make it as accessible as possible to our community.”
