The weather is slowly warming up, so we’re trialling some changes from Monday 18 January to keep pools open longer on hot days this summer, including:

  • extending the hours at Healesville Outdoor Pool on Monday to Sunday from 6.00pm – 7.00pm; and
  • offering morning lap swimming hours at Healesville Outdoor Pool on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings 6.30 am – 8.30 am and Sunday mornings 8.30 am- 10.30 am where the temperature is 23+ degrees.

In addition, we’re also making changes to allow the outdoor pools at Healesville, Belgrave, Lilydale and Kilsyth to stay open longer on hot days:

  • If the Coldstream weather forecast at 5pm on the day is 30 degrees Celsius or above and there are a minimum of 10 people at the Centre, the Centre will stay open for one hour past the normal scheduled closing time.
  • If the Coldstream weather forecast at 7pm on the same day is 30 degrees Celsius or above and there is a minimum of 10 people at the Centre, the Centre will stay open for one further hour until 8.00pm.

Regardless of the temperature or the number of people at the centre at 8.00pm the centre must close to the public so that the necessary end of day operations can be performed in sufficient day light.
