Sun lounging returns to the City’s pools!

Commencing on Saturday 19 December, the Swim’n’Go policy will be relaxed and customers will be able to lounge by the pool for extended periods of time.

Outdoor spaces that will re-open across the City’s pools include;

  • The grandstand and pool deck at Andrew (Boy) Charlton
  • The courtyard at Cook + Phillip Park Pool
  • The balcony at Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre
  • The grandstand and grass areas at Prince Alfred Park Pool
  • Poolside and grass areas at Victoria Park Pool

For the health and safety of our customers and colleagues, social distancing measures will still apply inside the centres. A 1.5m social distancing rule will be monitored by centre staff.

Lap lane capacities will remain in place (max. 10 per lane for public lap swimming). You can read more about our COVID-Safe Summer plan HERE.  

Centre staff will also be strictly monitoring capacities inside the centres. Please be aware as demand increases overs Summer, there may be queues and delays upon entry.

We would like to thank all of our customers for your patience and cooperation with our COVID-Safe plan since re-opening in June.

Our primary goal has been, and will continue to be, the health and safety of our customers, our colleagues, and our community.

We can’t wait to see you this weekend!
