Swimming in Greensborough
Were you one of the thousands of people who learned to swim at the Greensborough outdoor swimming pool? Greensborough Historical Society recently set up a new display on the history of swimming in the district at Diamond Valley Library at the rear of the Local History collection cabinet.
The display includes photographs and historical newspaper articles from the days of swimming in the Plenty River to the opening of the new WaterMarc facility.
