New Swimming Pool for Preston~!

The North needs more swimming pools and Preston is the ideal place!!!

Despite skyrocketing populations and slowly rising temperatures there are no plans to build new public swimming pools in Darebin (or Moreland).

We ask the Darebin Council to acquire land in Preston and build a new olympic outdoor pool. Ideally the pool will be open all year round.

There are only a handful of public pools in the Inner/Outer North and they are stretched to capacity. They are also managed very poorly.

Northcote Aquatic Centre is arguably the best pool in the area. However the pool(s) are often closed to the public because an enormous number of school carnivals are held here. The pool(s) are also all too often closed for maintenance.

Brunswick Baths is similarly stretched to capacity, extremely crowded throughout the hotter months and often closed due to swimming carnivals.

Coburg Olympic pool is only open for a short period each year. Inexplicably it is closed during many of the hottest months. Fawkner is also closed for most of the year.

There are also smaller indoor pools at Reservoir and Coburg that are typically jammed to capacity throughout the year.

Also worth mentioning is that in the past there were several other public swimming pools in Darebin. There were once pools in Fairfield and Alphington. In the 60s and 70s there was an olympic outdoor pool in Preston. It's time for Darebin to respond to the increasing population and add some new pools.
