Pyrmont Baths

Tidal harbour baths which were enlarged and deepened in 1901 with a smart shore building containing 85 dressing boxes, showers, club rooms, refreshment rooms and a gym. They became a central meeting place for amenity-starved residents of Pyrmont and Ultimo. When the Baths were threatened with demolition in 1929, the locals took over their administration and kept them going for another 17 years before they were finally demolished. Pyrmont Point Park was created in 1995. At the water's edge is the sculptural installation Tied to Tide by Jennifer Turpin and Michaelie Crawford, which rises and falls with the tides.
