Draft Strategy for the Future of Our Pools

Consultation has concluded

The draft Strategy for the Future of Our Pools will guide how we plan, provide and manage our nine supervised swimming pools and nine tidal rock pools across the LGA over the next 10 years. It is driven by the vision: ‘Wollongong City is host to a variety of highly-used, diverse and appealing aquatic recreational opportunities that meet our community’s needs of today and their desires of tomorrow’.

We are focused on our pools being attractive and well-utilised recreation destinations. In order to meet our community’s contemporary aquatic recreational needs, we must consider a fresh new strategic approach towards our pools to ensure they offer the infrastructure and services which facilitate a more diverse range of leisure activities.

This draft Strategy for the Future of Our Pools 2014-24 has been developed with the help of lots of feedback from our community over the past two years. We received great feedback on our pools and tidal rock pools through the development of our Wollongong 2022 Community Strategic Plan, as well as continued feedback through our Community Surveys.

To assist in the development of this draft Strategy, in 2013 we engaged Strategic Leisure Group to undertake a wide range of engagement activities with residents, staff, key stakeholders and visitors, based on our nine supervised public swimming pools. In addition to this body of work, in late 2013 / early 2014, we received valuable community feedback on the importance of our public swimming pools, including tidal rock pools, through the Securing Our Future Financial Sustainability Review.

We’d like to thank everyone who has provided input so far and encourage you to help us make Wollongong a better place for aquatic recreation by giving further feedback on this draft strategy.
