Everyone loves a community swimming pool.

An Albanese Labor Government will partner with the City of Kingston to deliver a new aquatic centre for communities across Melbourne’s south-east.

Labor’s $20 million contribution will help fund a facility accessible to the whole community, including:

  • a learn to swim pool for kids
  • Warm water therapy pool
  • Family water play area
  • 50 Metre Pool

Labor knows that existing facilities in this part of Melbourne aren’t keeping up with growing demand and are increasingly out of date.

That is why we will partner with the City of Kingston to deliver the facilities that locals deserve.

“When I heard about the announcement by the City of Kingston I was delighted. Many of us have fond memories of time spent at the local pools and I want this new aquatic and leisure centre to do the same for many people in the years to come.

 “After speaking with many people in the community about the project including the City of Kingston’s Mayor Cr Steve Staikos and Chief Executive Officer Peter Bean, I can now announce that Labor’s $20 million election funding commitment will enable the Council to deliver a full sized 50-metre pool, instead of the originally proposed 25-metre length. This will complement the learn to swim pool, water play area, and importantly the warm water therapy pool.

“The 50-metre Olympic-sized pool will be a significant drawcard for the new centre. This commitment confirms that under an Albanese Labor Government, I will continue to deliver for all the communities across my electorate of Isaacs.”
