A police spokeswoman said paramedics worked on the man but he died at the scene.
The death is not being treated as suspicious. Police will now prepare a report for the coroner.
The 50-metre outdoor swimming pool reopened for lap swimming, water exercise and rehabilitation at the end of September when COVID-19 restrictions were eased in metropolitan Melbourne.
Currently, outdoor pool capacities are capped at 50 swimmers with hour-long session. Indoors pools remain closed.
