Seasonal Outdoor Pools Scheduled to open for summer

With the weather warming up, the 2017-18 Greater Shepparton Outdoor Pool Season is about to kick off. The Tatura, Mooroopna and Merrigum pools will open on Saturday 18 November at 12.00pm.

Pools will remain open until the third weekend in March, with the final day of the summer pool season being Sunday 18 March.

“Maintenance staff have been working hard over the winter months at the pools. Both the Tatura and Mooroopna pool bases have been freshly painted and the Tatura community will have access to two new accessible change rooms open for the first time this year,” said Steve Wilson Team Leader Leisure Facilities Greater Shepparton City Council.

“Once again, the seasonal pools will be a great place to cool down and have some fun. If you would like to get active at the pool this year, we will have a wide range of programs and activities just for you. For a full list of our programs and activities check out your local pool or download the Get Mooving Greater Shepparton App.

“There will be a range of activities happening over summer from giant inflatables and water games for the kids through to aqua aerobics and early morning swimming for the big kids at heart. Don’t forget to get your seasonal pool membership passes which can be used at all three pools,” said Mr Wilson.

Tatura and Mooroopna pools are opened from 12pm to 7pm daily. Merrigum Swimming Pool is opened Monday to Friday from 3.30pm to 7pm, and Saturday and Sunday 1pm to 7pm. Depending on weather conditions these times could change. Extended operating hours will come into play from 18 December 2017.
