Thank you to our wonderful PARC community for your support during the difficult COVID closure period.
Our team has been working hard behind the scenes to prepare the Centre and we are working towards opening in a limited capacity from Monday 9th November. The current Victorian Government restrictions mean that our opening will look very different from last time, due to the limited amount of people we are allowed within the Centre.
At this stage as we can only have 20 people per area within the facility as confirmed by the current guidelines, we are working towards offering:
- Gym floor open with limited capacity of 10
- Group Exercise limited to 1 class at a time with a small capacity of 10
- 50m Pool open with limited capacity lap swimming/exercise of 20
- Warm Water Pool open with limited capacity of 20
In addition to this we’re also finalising the development of a 5-week Learn to Swim program to launch on Monday 16th November for the remainder of Term 4, which aims to support our younger swimmers’ re-engagement into swim lessons. The inability to access learn to swim programs during lockdown is a significant and emerging safety risk. Peninsula Leisure remains committed to ensuring every child in Frankston can swim, and as a result we have prioritised learn to swim programming.
Thank you so much for your patience as we finalise all the details of our reopening plan. We will be confirming the final details of our reopen plan, including how to book, what to expect and details of our offering on Friday 6th November. Please keep an eye on your inbox, our website and Facebook and Instagram pages for the latest information.
Peninsula Leisure has always been committed to ensuring we offer a diverse range of programs to our community, providing options to keep you all active during closure and beyond. Therefore, in addition to the above opening programming we continue to offer the following existing programs to the entire community:
- PARC Your Way – a digital at-home exercise program.
- Outdoor Personal Training
- Outdoor Group Exercise classes
- Online Personal Training
There is a lot to consider in relation to opening a Centre as large as PARC, and we have been actively working with Council to ensure that when we do open, we have the right processes in place to protect your safety.
At the moment all PARC memberships remain on suspension. More details will follow on Friday.
Thank you for your patience. We’re so excited about welcoming you back at PARC again next week!
