Aquatic Centre outdoor pool to open November 30

By Simon Ruppert

The outdoor pool at Benalla Aquatic centre will open for the 2019-2020 season on November 30, and the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a hot and dry summer ahead.

The outdoor pool, along with the indoor aquatic facilities, provides the local community with the perfect place to escape the upcoming warm weather.

YMCA manager Elise Wood encourages locals to make the most of the pool and community space.

“The pools are great places to spend warm days relaxing and cooling off,” Ms Wood said.

“There’s something special about outdoor pools.

“It’s about having fun in the sun, time with your kids, or just a nice quiet dip in the lanes after work.”

The prices for the 2019/2020 pool season are:

● Adult $7.20

● Child $5.20

● Student/Concession $6.20

● Family $18
