Parkes Aquatic Centre needs an indoor pool

The Parkes community needs an Indoor pool. Parkes is growing especially with the construction of the Inland Logistics hub and the Mines.

Parkes is a growing community and we are becoming more health orientated, an indoor pool facility would help encourage the community to remain healthy, to get fit and would benefit those who need rehabilitation.

 Many user groups utilize the current pool facility but due to the facility closing for winter it makes it hard for them to continue their good work. Physiotherapists, Oncology groups, aqua aerobics, Learn To Swim, Swim Club, regular Lap swimmers and many of the general public utilize the pool for fitness and rehabilitation. 

Having an indoor pool facility, would mean these groups and people can continue all year round doing the great work they try to build in the community without having to start from scratch every summer season. This facility could also encourage winter sporting teams such as Football, soccer, netball and hockey to come and have training or cool down sessions at the pool.

The facility doesn't have to be grand, just a simple 25 metre, 7 lane indoor pool, program pool and a splash pad for young children would be enough to serve and greatly enhance our community.
