Fairfield City Leisure Centres are reopening public indoor and outdoor swimming pools in line with easing NSW Government restrictions.

Prairiewood Leisure Centre pools and the Cabravale 20 metre pool will reopen on Monday June 22.

Fairfield Leisure Centre's 25 metre pool will reopen on Monday 29 June.

Change rooms will be open for use and a COVID-safe plan will be in place to protect the health and wellbeing of swimmers and staff.

Council is also planning to recommence learn to swim classes from Monday 6 July in line with the school holidays.

Fairfield City mayor Frank Carbone thanked everyone for their patience while the pools were closed.

"Our pools are very popular places for recreation and exercise, and I know that there are many residents who have been eager for us to reopen, he said.

"Restrictions have now eased enough for Council to be able to reopen its pools to the public while feeling confident that the health and wellbeing of swimmers is being protected.

"While our centres have been closed, Council has spent more than $1.7 million on maintenance and improvement projects."
