Chance to reconnect: Supporters at a rally to save the Carss Park Pool last summer have a chance to meet up again this weekend.

Supporters of the Carss Park Pool will hold a community picnic this Saturday to reconnect and keep the fighting spirit burning.

The Kogarah War Memorial Pool, popularly known as the Carss Park Pool, was closed suddenly by Georges River Council on July 23 after pipes were found to be leaking into Kogarah Bay.

"They closed the doors so suddenly that people didn't get a chance to say goodbye or swap phone numbers or email addresses," Save Carss Park Pool action group member Natalie Mort said.

"This will be a chance to reconnect and continue those friendships that were made over so many years of swimming at the pool," Natalie said.

Long-time coach at Carss Park pool, Dick Caine and his wife Jenny have been invited to attend, along with Georges River councillors.

People are being asked to bring chairs, snacks, their Carss Park Pool and Team Caine gear, and their Carss Park pool community spirit.

The picnic will be held at Carss Park, next to the pool, on Saturday, September 14 at 2pm.
