Council pools are a cool place to play
BRISBANE City Council is inviting families to take a splash at Brisbane’s public pools, with summer pool hours in effect from this weekend.
Infrastructure Chairman Cr Amanda Cooper said several of Council’s pools had undergone some exciting developments over the winter shutdown period.
This included a new $500,000 aqua park at Sandgate Aquatic Centre.
In the last financial year more than 2.6 million people went through the gates of Council’s public pools with more than 511,000 people taking part in learn to swim programs, 198,000 people completing squad training and 90,000 people taking part in aqua fitness classes.
All Council pools are participating venues of the Royal Life Saving Queensland’s Keep Watch @ Public Pools program, which aims to increase children’s water safety through parental supervision.”
