SITE reviews are underway to find a home for a new local aquatic centre.
Kingston councillors have approved an Aquatic Facility Plan. Council plans to construct a new swimming centre somewhere in the central or south region of the municipality.
Kingston mayor Steve Staikos said “aquatic facilities are extremely valuable for the community boosting the health and wellbeing of all ages, and also providing essential water safety education and a social gathering place for families and friends to come together. This is a major investment for our community and requires rigorous planning to make sure it’s delivered well. Council is currently conducting initial investigations of a number of potential sites for the new centre.”
Council projects that the pool will not be finished until at least 2026.
The move to open a new aquatic centre started when Don Tatnell Leisure Centre was permanently closed in early 2020. The Parkdale pool was shut due to “major structural issues”.
