PARC temporary closure | Friday 12th Feb

Following the Victorian Government press conference today, Friday 12th Feb, there will be a temporary stage 4 lockdown for five days until 11.59pm on Wednesday 17th Feb.

This unfortunately means that Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre (PARC) will close at 9.00pm on Friday 12th Feb and hope to reopen at 5.00am on Thursday 18th Feb, unless there is another Government announcement.

We understand that this will be huge inconvenience to all our members and hope that this shorter lockdown means a quick recovery from the recent outbreak. We anticipate we will be back open to normal operations by Thursday next week.

All members will be provided with a credit on your account for the five day closure that will be applied on the next direct debit payment on Thursday 4th March. Please see below some Frequently Asked Questions.

How to stay motivated during the five days

Don’t forget we have online programs to help you keep active during the five day closure.

  • PARC Your Way: Our online digital website with hundreds of workouts available to do anytime anywhere. We will be sending through some suggested workout programs over the weekend to all our PARC Your Way subscribers, so if you haven’t already please sign up now for free.
  • PARC Fit App: Every member has access to our PARC Fit App which includes programs to do at home and we will be updating these early next week. Search for PARC Fit in your App Store.

This week is Men’s Health Week, an important time in the year to raise awareness in preventable health issues in men and encourage the early detection and treatment of diseases amongst men and boys. 

With only 27% of men being active enough to stay healthy, it's important to prioritise your health and get movement into your day. 

To help raise awareness for the week, we interviewed Mark. One of our very dedicated members of PARC who has gone through his own journey to become active and healthy in his life. We spoke about the start to his health journey, his relationship with the PARC community and why he thinks that men's health is so important.

To read our blog interview with Mark head to the link in our bio.
