In a phased re-opening plan, the Leisure pools at Lane Cove Aquatic Leisure Centre will re-open on Saturday 26th September with all indoor aquatic areas available to the public. The Leisure pool is a designated water playground, ideal for family fun and recreation for our littlest water babies to engage in a safe and interactive aquatic environment. A combination of multiple interconnecting large activity pools offering ease of viewing, and varying water depths from zero-depth entry to 1m.
Each pool is packed with perennial water play favourites such as oversized waterspouts to dodge, a mini rain curtain to walk or paddle under, as well as a continuously bubbling circular fountain to enjoy. The leisure pools have been designed to allow tiny tots to explore water play and promote water confidence in a social and sensory-based aquatic setting. It’s a place where kids will be absorbed in the water and water activities from splashing in it, swishing about in it or simply swimming in it.
Entry to the Lane Cove Aquatic Leisure Centre will be different from past seasons, with a dedicated Covid-19 Marshall (aka: Hygiene Hero) on-site at all times. As it is a shared public space, compliance with the allowed 1 person per four square metre and 1.5m social distancing rule must be adhered to at all times. Numbers are also limited in the change rooms. The Centre has strict Covid-19 safety protocols in place to keep Centre staff, management and patrons as safe as possible, but COVID safety is a team effort. With this in mind, Centre visitors will be asked to be vigilant in keeping 1.5m distance from others (outside their bubble) as well as avoiding physical greetings, practising extra care when bumping into friends or neighbours at the pool, always practising good hygiene, staying at home if displaying any cold or flu symptoms and get tested. Covid-19 safety signs are clearly posted in the Centre and no go zones are visibly marked which we anticipate will act as reminder prompts for our patrons.
Lane Cove Aquatic Leisure Centre boasts a team of highly skilled and experienced staff who also ensure the water quality is monitored and maintained to standards beyond those stipulated by the NSW Health Guidelines. Water testing is conducted every three hours across all water bodies. In addition, microbiological lab testing is conducted every month.
Our local swimming pools inspire community activity and whether you are keen to swim laps, get fit or just have some splashing good fun, there is the perfect pool or program for all ages and stages at Lane Cove Aquatic Leisure Centre. Choose from the Leisure pools for family fun, the dedicated warm water program pool, perfect for swim classes and rehab. While keen swimmers can dive into the 25m indoor pool, complete with dedicated lanes for laps.
Our aquatic opening hours will be the following:
MON – FRI: 5:30AM – 8PM
SAT – SUN: 6AM – 3PM
