As the weather warms up, families and residents in the Yarra Ranges are being urged to head to their local outdoor pool to cool down and keep active.
With winter a distant memory, the council has announced the opening dates for the pools in the shire.
Shire mayor Len Cox said indoor facilities are open year round, but the local outdoor pools were an asset for the community heading into summer.
“We recently switched on the water fountains and jets at Seville and Lillydale Lake water play parks, and our outdoor pools are the next step as we get ready for summer,” Cr Cox said.
“Through the warmer months, no matter where you are in the Yarra Ranges, it will be easy to make your way to one of our pools or water play parks so you can cool off and have some fun.”
Council’s outdoor pools will be opening from:
Belgrave Outdoor Pool – 8 October, with normal summer hours from 5 November
Lilydale Outdoor Pool – 17 November
Healesville Outdoor Pool – 1 December
Kilsyth Outdoor Pool – 3 November
Olinda Outdoor Pool – 1 December
