The City of Canterbury Bankstown has adopted a range of new initiatives to ensure its Leisure and Aquatic Centres are Still Open (But Different) during peak periods this summer.

In light of current restrictions in place across the state, extra measures have been set up at the Birrong, Max Parker, Canterbury, Roselands and Wran Leisure and Aquatic Centres to effectively manage crowds and limit capacity levels.

These measures include the introduction of new capacity counting technology with live displays at entrances to Centres which indicate how full they are, as well as improved security to better manage behaviour and physical distancing.

“We’re also using our website and social media channels to provide community members with regular updates on capacity,” Mayor Khal Asfour said.

“This will save people from having to wait outside, so I really encourage everyone to check these platforms frequently.” Mayor Asfour said the new measures would allow community members to still enjoy Council’s pools in an optimally COVID-Safe way over summer.

“Thousands of people love coming to our Centres to cool off each summer. Unfortunately current restrictions mean capacity levels are much lower compared to what we’re used to, and measures such as needing to sign in when you arrive, will all go towards managing this,” Mayor Asfour said.

He said Council staff will be doing their best to provide the most enjoyable experience, but urged community members to remain patient as entering may take a little longer than usual.

“While this year hasn’t been easy, I’m so proud and thankful for every community member who has adapted, and most importantly, have continued to be kind to one another.”

The new set of Still Open (But Different) measures joins Council’s continued commitment towards its Leisure and Aquatics’ COVID-Safe Plan, which implements active cleaning and disinfection, cashless payments and physical distancing.
