Upper Swimming Pool

This swimming pool is located behind the Clubhouse and beside the Garden Water Feature.

The measurement of the this pool is 25 Metres by 5 Metres and 1.2 Metres deep and is a concrete pool that has been finished with an epoxy painted surface. The pool is currently undergoing a refurbishment into a fully tiled pool and is expected to be complete by the end of October, 2016

The pool is of the salt chlorinated type that is heated during the season by two natural gas heaters. To supplement this gas heating, the pool also has its own Solar system that maintains the pool heating during the day.

There have been recycled timber benches constructed and installed at each end of the pool to supplement the sun lounges around the pool. There is a shower for users to rinse off before entering the pool.

Between the pool edge and the timber benches at both ends, large shade umbrellas have been installed to protect the pool users.

There is a large grassed area for just laying around on towels as well as a paved area.

Tennis Courts

There are two synthetic all weather tennis courts available to use at Pulpit Point by PPHOA residents and their guests.

Both of the courts were renovated in 2013 and undergo a service every six months, to machine hard broomed and remove the top layer of sand, then reinstate the sand and add extra if required, to ensure the grass strands are remaining in a vertical position to maintain a consistent bounce.

The courts are for daytime use only.

Bookings for the courts can be made by simply writing in the tennis diary, which is kept inside the weatherproof box inside the courts near the net of court # 1. Bookings are not to be further ahead than 2 weeks.

Marina

The area known as Fern Bay is owned by the NSW Government and managed by the NSW Roads & Maritime Services, which in turn has leased part of the bay to the Pulpit Point Home Owners Association (PPHOA) for the purpose of building a private Marina and a publically accessed boardwalk. Both were completed in 1994.

The Pulpit Point Marina has 112 berths and they are assigned to property owners at Pulpit Point. It comprises 24 x 15 metre berths, 56 x 12 metre berths, 32 x 10 metre berths, 2 x Pump Out berths and 2 Visitor berths

The PPHOA has appointed a Marina Committee to manage the day to day operations and maintenance of the Marina and boardwalk on its behalf. The administration of the Marina Committee is performed by the PPHOA Facility Manager

Pulpit Point Gardens
In the grassed park garden area on the corner of St Malo Ave and Le Vesinet, is the entrance
between the sandstone walls to the steps that takes you down along a winding path, past a number
of water lily ponds that a small waterfall joins, into an type of oasis area that is surrounded by palm
trees and rain forest vegetation.
The stream from the pond winds its way down the slight incline and passes under the path, where it
eventually enters into a larger pond underneath a timber walkway and protected by a 2 metre high
sandstone wall to the East.
The stream then travels into the final pond from where the water is pumped up to the top pond to
start the journey again.
There are a number of koi fish that reside in the bottom pond but depending on heavy rains will
sometime travel upstream and remain in the middle pond for a period of time before returning to
the bottom pond.
There are many palm trees throughout the water feature gardens.
The lush vegetation surrounds the stream from top to bottom and continues around the rear of the
Community Centre Clubhouse and changes into a beautiful formal garden that borders the adjoining
strata apartments to the West.
The manicured lawns continue from the Clubhouse down to the timber boardwalk that rings the
Pulpit Point Marina.
There are at least 50 palm trees along the grass verges of the boardwalk that border the Northern
and Western faces of the Marina.
