Spring Hill - History
The Brisbane Corportion built Brisbane's first in ground public baths at Spring Hill in 1886 at a cost of some 2,526. The Spring Hill Baths overtook the older floating baths in the Brisbane River in popularity and also provided an important hygiene/sanitation facility in Spring Hill: The pool was drained every evening into the Spring Hill drain, and the baths water replenished in a process lasting several hours. This clever system of hygienically flushing the Spring Hill drain was employed for three-quarters of a century. Other works at that time included a second reservoir at Spring Hill and an extensive drainage system in Spring Hollow. The Spring Hill Baths is one of the oldest municipal Swimming Baths still in use.
