PARC temporary closure | Friday 12th Feb

Following the Victorian Government press conference today, Friday 12th Feb, there will be a temporary stage 4 lockdown for five days until 11.59pm on Wednesday 17th Feb.

This unfortunately means that Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre (PARC) will close at 9.00pm on Friday 12th Feb and hope to reopen at 5.00am on Thursday 18th Feb, unless there is another Government announcement.

We understand that this will be huge inconvenience to all our members and hope that this shorter lockdown means a quick recovery from the recent outbreak. We anticipate we will be back open to normal operations by Thursday next week.

All members will be provided with a credit on your account for the five day closure that will be applied on the next direct debit payment on Thursday 4th March. Please see below some Frequently Asked Questions.
