Summary of facility development from Mayor's opening address: These pools were originally built in 1970 and the complex was named in honour of the Town Clerk of Ringwood for many years - Fred Dwerryhouse Swimming Centre. In 1980 the pools were heated and in 1985 Ringwood Council decided to enclose the main pool, install air conditioning, add a diving area, heat the main pool all year, and generally upgrade the entire complex.
