What about Civic Pool?
Civic Pool is ageing and repair works would extend its life only briefly. A new aquatic facility in the City was identified as a high priority of need by the ACT Government in 2013.
The ACT Aquatic Alliance is calling for a new home for lap swimmers and aquatic sports in the inner north. Our plan answers these calls with a new indoor-outdoor pool in the beautiful Commonwealth Park, featuring the iconic 10m diving board and stunning views across to the Brindabellas. The National Capital Authority has stated its support for this plan.
According to a Royal Life Saving report, the ACT received $0 of the combined $316.5 million in Federal Government funding delivered and committed for aquatic facilities across Australia from 2017 to 2022. It is time for us to receive our fair share and use it to lock in a long-awaited plan for the future of Civic Pool.
