We’re heading towards our COVID Normal!

We’ve all heard The Premier talk about reaching our ‘COVID Normal’ and we’re getting so close to this milestone. Only one more step to go!  

Following recent confirmation about our capacity limits, we’ve decided that from Monday 30th November, you will no longer need to pre-book to visit the gym and aquatic areas at PARC! Group Exercise classes will remain on the booking system as it was pre-COVID.  

This update coincides with us reactivating all Complete and Aquatic memberships, meaning members get more flexibility and can return to the Centre to enjoy our programs and facilities in a COVID-safe environment.

What about PARC Swim? 

We’re currently running a series of intensive programs for our PARC Swim members which booked out quickly!  

We won’t be reactivating PARC Swim memberships until 2021 as it isn’t cost effective for our members when normal lessons are not available. If you want to join PARC Swim click here.

We’re planning a Summer intensive program in January and we will look to reactivate memberships so you can enjoy our facilities throughout the school holidays. Watch this space! 


How are we keeping you COVID-safe? 

Your health and safety within our facility is still our first priority, so even though capacity is significantly increasing, we will still maintain our stringent COVID protocols and terms of entry:

Face masks must be worn in Centre unless out of breath exercising, entering the pool or a medical exemption.
Contact details will be taken upon entry, either via your PARC band through the turnstile or a QR code to sign in
Social distancing is required throughout the Centre regardless of location you must stay 1.5 meters away from other patrons
COVID Marshalls and PARC staff will be monitoring and enforcing all terms of entry throughout the building
Hand sanitising is encouraged as you enter and exit each area of the facility
Cleaning equipment after use is essential with the disinfectant wipes provided 
Bring your own towel and water bottle as there is no drinking fountains available

What if I want to attend casually? 

No problem we can still have casual visitors in Centre, however please note that our pricing will return to what it was pre COVID closure which is slightly more than during restricted times. If you’re thinking of attending more than two times a week it could be worth getting a membership. Click here for more information.   


Thanks for your support 

We would like to thank each and every one of our members and visitors for your patience during this turbulent time. We recognise there has been a lot of information and changing of situations and our team has been working so hard to make sure you have the best experience. 

Please bear with us as we manage all the enquiries that are coming through and be kind to our staff who are trying their best to support you to be safe in a very strange environment that we live in now.  

 We can’t wait to have you back!
