The Hughenden Aquatic Centre was taken over by enthusiastic new managers Shane and Lynette McCarthy in February 2012.
The facility is located on Resolution Street, Hughenden.
Opening hours have extended, with swimmers now welcome Monday to Friday 6am-10:30am and 1:30pm-7pm, Saturday 11am-6pm and Sunday 1pm-6pm.
There are now also options for family fun nights and weekend birthday parties and there is also a swimming club. The Centre has introduced a new, value Kiosk menu for visitors to the pool to enjoy (even if you're not swimming!).
A `Mums and Bubs' program has been introduced, with babies introduced to swimming at three months of age. These programs are full of songs and fun activities and are designed to support the parent while the baby learns.
Learn to swim classes, as well as five other squads will be held at the pool during the week.
The Aquatic Centre and the 33m pool, which has six lanes, are available for private hire, lane hire, pool hire and BBQ hire, including after-hour events.
All staff are Blue Card cleared and CPR trained. There is lifeguard supervision, a 10m toddler pool, a cafe with coffee, drinks and food (there is a new, great value menu, including lunch packs available), morning swim and coffee deals, and more.
For more information contact Managers Lynette and Shane on 47411885, or drop into the Centre on Resolution Street.
