Mossman Pool & Caravan Park on Park Street in Mossman is over 30 years old, and currently managed by Douglas Shire Council.

Council has reviewed the facility and has produced a concept masterplan as well as a proposed scope of works.

The aim of the project is to deliver a contemporary facility including an upgrade to the pool to Regional competition pool standards, and a Destination caravan park with potential as a revenue centre for Council.
