Praise for Heyfield pool

HEYFIELD Memorial Pool is one of the five best seasonally managed facilities in Victoria, according to Aquatics and Recreation Victoria.

The outdoor swimming pool was found to have exceptionally efficient and safe operation, and this lead to a 2016 ARV Seasonal Facility Management Award nomination.

Mayor Darren McCubbin congratulates the team on its great efforts.

“Our leisure services staff work extremely hard to provide a great summer swimming experience,” Cr McCubbin said.

“The numbers at Heyfield have risen dramatically since we made some operational changes at our outdoor pools.”

“Of particular note are the facility’s improvements in access and inclusion where marked increases are clearly reported in the use of the disability access ramp and pool wheelchair,” Cr McCubbin said.

“I’m looking forward to next summer’s swim season, and the opportunity to enjoy our fantastic facilities once more.”

Improvements at the facility were welcomed by visitors, demonstrated by a marked increase in numbers which rose from 2265 in 2014/15 to 3560 in 2015/16.
