Following the Victorian Government announcement at the weekend (Sunday 18 October), we’re able to confirm the following updates and what it means for our PARC and Pines Forest Aquatic Centre communities.
Increase Capacity at Outdoor Pools
We’re delighted to be able to increase the number of people who can attend Pines Forest Aquatic Centre per session. We’ve updated the booking system allowing for up to 30 people to attend each session.
All the same conditions of entry apply, apart from now allowing anyone who lives and works within 25km of the facility is able to book and visit.
Please read our website COVID information thoroughly prior to booking and familiarise yourself with our Pool Etiquette section to ensure you’re across the process for your arrival.
We’re so looking forward to welcoming a larger proportion of our community to Pines this week! Click here to book.
Outdoor Group Exercise Delayed
Currently the restrictions only allow for two households to meet up for exercise and the DHHS website clearly states that Personal Training remains as a max of 2 people per Trainer. This means our plans for Outdoor Group Exercise have been pushed back a couple of weeks.
However we encourage everyone to hang in there! It won’t be much longer and we are ready to go as soon as the Victorian Government allows.
At this stage we are hoping to be able to launch our fantastic Outdoor Group Exercise program at the next easing of restrictions, provisionally 2 November. Please keep a close eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages as we will let you know as soon as we do!
Hydrotherapy Indoor pools
The Government announcement around access to hydrotherapy pools referred to private facilities who offer 1:1 care in their hydrotherapy pool. Larger Recreational and Aquatic facilities with a Warm Water Pool are still to remain closed at this time.
