Pools, water play park, aquatic facilities; have your say

Should the Swan Hill Outdoor Pool be relocated to the Swan Hill Leisure Centre? Does our region needs a public water play park? Do we need to expand or upgrade our current aquatic facilities?

Council has engaged SGL Consulting to develop a 10 year Aquatics Strategic Plan for our region and you can have your say via online survey.

The strategy will be designed to inform Council’s service delivery, major and capital works programs and asset management strategies for:

  • Swan Hill Leisure Centre
  • Swan Hill Outdoor Public Swimming Pool
  • Robinvale Leisure Centre
  • Manangatang Public Swimming Pool
  • Nyah Public Swimming Pool

Council’s Director Development and Planning Heather Green said Council recognised the importance of pools and aquatic facilities for the region.

“We know that these key pieces of infrastructure provide significant health and social wellbeing benefits to the community,” Ms Green said.

“We know that aquatic and leisure facilities, including natural waterways and water parks, provide jobs and income opportunities which can contribute to our local economy. And we know that some of these facilities need some pretty major upgrades, upgrades that are heavily reliant on external funding.

“This is why we’re developing an Aquatics Strategy – to give us a realistic and achievable vision for the development or refurbishment of aquatics facilities over the next ten years.

“And to make the strategy represents the needs and wants of our community, we need residents to get involved and provide feedback.”

Some of the aims of the strategy include determining the future location of the Swan Hill Outdoor Swimming Pool, identifying improvements, redevelopment or expansion opportunities for aquatic facilities in the municipality and the viability and preferred location for a water play park in Swan Hill.
