With the weather warming up, local lifeguards are gearing up to dive into another big pool season.
Last swim season, Council waived the admission fees in an effort to provide our farmers, businesses and residents some small respite from the drought, which saw patronage numbers over double.
This summer Parkes pool users will pay half the admission fee. Users of the Peak Hill, Trundle and Tullamore pools will enjoy the township facilities for free for another season.
Parkes Aquatic Centre admission prices for the 2019/20 season are:
• Adult (18 years and over) $2.20
• Child (5-17 years) $1.20
• Child (under 5 years) Free – must be accompanied by a paying adult
• Child (school-based activities) $1.00
• Concession $1.20 (excludes Seniors Card)
• Spectator $1.00
• Family admission ticket $6.00
• Book of 20 admission tickets $40
• Book of 10 admission tickets $21
The Parkes Aquatic Centre will open on the October long weekend, with the township pools opening on Saturday, 2nd November.
Parkes Shire Aquatic Coordinator, Nikki Thornhill said: “This summer, Parkes Aquatic Centre will host Funday Sundays once a month, with the popular inflatable just $5 per swimmer for unlimited goes. We are also looking to start a friendly Water Polo competition and would love to hear from anyone interested in participating to get that up and running.”
“The pool will also be taking bookings for events and parties throughout the season.”
