When will our swimming pools and other facilities reopen?

We're working towards opening facilities and services in line with the NSW Government approach.

The National Cabinet and NSW Premier outlined a staged approach to the easing of restrictions.

Swimming pools

Victoria Park Pool and Prince Alfred Park Pool reopened on Monday 1 June.

Both pools are open Monday to Friday, from 6am to 7pm.

Only eight people will be permitted to use Victoria Park Pool and nine at Prince Alfred Park Pool per 45 minute session in line with NSW Government’s Public Health Order.

This will result in 1,530 sessions available for booking across both pools per week.

We are also prioritising access to vulnerable members of the community by reserving a number of sessions each day.

Booking is essential and can be confirmed by calling the centre directly between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

As state restrictions ease, we will look at expanding access to our pools.

Our indoor pools and gyms remain temporarily closed in line with state restrictions.

We are investigating the option of using our indoor pool for squad training, and will make further announcements over the coming weeks.

Playgrounds and outdoor fitness areas

All of our public playgrounds, skate parks and outdoor fitness areas reopened on Friday 15 May. These playgrounds and play spaces are inspected and cleaned regularly.

Signs have been installed in these areas to ensure people comply with physical distancing measures and public health orders and also encourage users to wipe exercise equipment before and after use.

Fitness training groups with a maximum of 10 total participants (including the trainer) are now permitted to train in the our parks. Fitness groups must follow physical distancing measures and the City’s Code of Conduct for Fitness Training.

Outdoor multipurpose sports courts, used for basketball and netball, will remain temporarily closed.

Our parks and tennis courts are already open for people to use and enjoy.

Training on sporting fields

With easing of restrictions across the state, community sports groups and schools will resume training on many of the City’s sports fields from Monday 1 June 2020.

Sporting clubs will follow guidelines set out by the NSW Office of Sport and relevant sporting bodies.

The City takes advice on all public health matters from the state and federal health departments and complies with restrictions announced by the national cabinet of the Prime Minister, state premiers and territory chief ministers.

Sporting clubs must comply with physical distancing measures and public health orders while training on our sporting fields.
