COVID normal at PARC!


We did it! The day is finally here when we can announce what a PARC ‘COVID Normal’ looks like and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Following the Victorian Government announcement on Sunday 6th December we’ve updated our terms of entry and capacity allowances. So, here’s everything you need to know about the main two updates: 

  • Capacity allowance: We can now welcome 1 person per every 4 sq metres in Centre. This means a lot more freedom and flexibility across the facility, particularly Group Exercise classes! 
    • Keep an eye out for signage in each area stating how many people can be in the space.
    • For more information please see our COVID safe plan. 
  • Face masks: Are no longer mandatory and are now to be worn at patron’s discretion. The Victorian Government, however, is strongly recommending they remain in place and so to protect our patrons all Peninsula Leisure staff will still be wearing masks.  


Additional new updates: 

  • Car parking: Will be reinstated from Tuesday 8th December, all members need to make sure their parking pass is up to date and see reception if a new one is required. 
  • PARC Swim: Memberships remain on hold and are due to be reinstated next year in time for Term 1. However we’ve launched a Summer intensive program for interested members, click here for more info. 
  • Virtual fitness is back: Any member attending must wipe down their own equipment at the end of the class.  
  • User groups: Can enquire for bookings across the facility. Please click here for more info. 
  • Birthday Parties & Holiday programs: We’ll be announcing the details of our Summer holiday program and birthday party bookings soon, so watch this space!
