Geelong’s Eastern Beach children’s pool to reopen early

Geelong’s Eastern Beach children’s pool to reopen early
November 20, 2020

To coincide with the reopening of Geelong’s Eastern Beach children's pool on Saturday 21st November, the lifeguard patrol season will begin a week early at Eastern Beach.

The wading pool has undergone significant improvements over the past few months, with pool tiles replaced and a new circulation pump and pool concourse pit lids installed.

The City has secured the support of LSV to bring forward the patrol season, which would normally run from 28th November through until April.

Eastern Beach children's pool will be monitored by Life Saving Victoria (LSV) lifeguards and security, to ensure that visitors maintain their social distance and follow COVID-safe measures.

Lifeguards will be on patrol over the weekend from 11am to 6pm.

In line with Victoria’s COVID-19 directions, all people over the age of 12 must wear a face mask unless they have a lawful reason not to. This includes while they are in the water.

Visitors must also be respectful of other people’s space and keep at least 1.5 metres distance from others.

Families are encouraged to limit their attendance in the pool area to an hour, to allow other visitors to safely enjoy the highly popular location.

Greater Geelong Mayor Stephanie Asher notes “Eastern Beach Reserve has been Geelong’s premier family-friendly destination for more than 80 years. We are really pleased to be able to welcome children back to the Eastern Beach wading pool and encourage everyone to adhere to the guidelines and directions that are in place so everyone can safely enjoy this wonderful reserve. Just remember we must continue to follow the state’s COVIDSafe measures.”
