PARC to reopen Friday 18 June

We are happy to announce that from Friday this week, 18 June, PARC will reopen our doors again!

Saying that, very strict restrictions will be in place so unfortunately, we will not be returning to the post-COVID ‘normal’ right away. Thank you for your patience as we finalised our initial reopen plan.

There is a lot to be considered with the latest restrictions, and we wanted to ensure we had the right services and processes in place and are keeping our community moving safely!



The Victorian Acting Premier has announced an easing of COVID Safe restrictions for Metro Melbourne effective Friday 18 June, allowing indoor fitness and recreation facilities, such as PARC, to open with 50 people in the building.


PARC Services – Main Pool, Warm Water Pool and Gym to open:

In-line with the imposed capacity restrictions, we have had to change our operations and services, and slightly adjusted our operating hours.

As a result, for this initial reopen, we will be opening:

  • The 25metre lap pool for lap swimming only,
  • The Warm Water Pool, and
  • The Gym Floor.
  • Toilets and change rooms are available.
  • All other services, including Group Exercise, Swimming Programs and Café, remain closed.

We know this may be limiting for many of you, but we are hopeful these latest restrictions will be reviewed again in a week’s time, so as soon as we can open up more services and capacity – we will!

PARC Access – Bookings only:

To ensure we adhere to the strict capacity limits, all lap swimming, warm water pool and gym floor sessions must be booked as a casual entry pay-as-you-go . Unfortunately, memberships will remain on hold for this initial reopen phase, and you will be required to book and pre-pay for each of your swims and gym workouts sessions online.

  • Bookings for our reopen tomorrow are now available on the website.
  • Future bookings will be available 3 days in advance.
  • Bookings will be a flat fee for everyone.
  • Sessions will run for 50 minutes to allow 10 minutes turnaround between sessions for cleaning time.
  • You must book online, no walk-ins will be permitted.
