Time Out Melbourne

Prahran Pool is where to go if you want to see and be seen. The 50 metre outdoor lap pool is open year round – and it’s heated, so you don’t let the thought of icy cold water put you off in winter. Just off Chapel Street, summer at the Prahran Pool draws a mixed crowd, check out the beautiful people preening on the stairs, the cool kids lounging on the lawns or the families running around the toddler’s pool.
