Adelaide Aquatic Centre set to reopen

The Adelaide Aquatic Centre will reopen on Monday 3 August with a wide range of services available to the community.

As part of the City of Adelaide’s response to protect the health and wellbeing of our community, the Adelaide Aquatic Centre has been temporarily closed since March.

On 29 June, SA moved into stage 3 of the South Australian Roadmap for Easing COVID-19 Restrictions which enables the majority of the Adelaide Aquatic Centre services to reopen.

The Council Incident Management Team (CIMT) has acted responsibly and with caution in deciding when to reopen and following risk assessments have determined next month was the right time to do so.

Given the Adelaide Aquatic Centre is a large facility, we have needed to understand how reopening applies to us and how we can deliver safe services.

We are now in a position where we can safely reopen and provide the majority of the centre’s usual services.

Recent changes have allowed more people inside the Aquatic Centre and will see the reintroduction of lap swimming, swim school and gym activities, including group fitness being made available to the general public and members, noting that some services may be modified or restricted to assist in providing a safe environment.

“The Adelaide Aquatic team is now focusing on the reengagement of critical staff, contacting the centre’s members to advise them of the reopening and marketing to the community,” said Tom McCready - Associate Director Property & Commercial.

“We understand how important this facility is to the community and it’s excellent news that we will soon be able to welcome people back.”
