Swim outdoors all year round at Sunshine Leisure Centre


Year-round outdoor swimming has been added to the list of offerings at Sunshine Leisure Centre – and there’s more improvements to come.

Brimbank Mayor, Cr Lucinda Congreve said the outdoor pool winter hours trial would start from 1 May.

“It’s a really exciting time at Sunshine Leisure Centre.

“We’ve taken on feedback from members who said they were keen to have access to the outdoor pool outside of the summer months.

“So, instead of closing the outdoor pool at the end of the summer season like we normally would, we’re starting a winter trial at Sunshine Leisure Centre from the 1st of May.

“This means the outdoor pool will stay open for the entire year, so if you’re keen for a swim in the great outdoors in the middle of winter – Sunshine Leisure Centre’s got you covered,” Cr Congreve said.

From 1 May 2019 the outdoor pool at Sunshine Leisure Centre will be open from 6am-9am and 4pm-7pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to 12noon on weekends, until summer returns.

In the coming months, Sunshine Leisure Centre will also introduce further improvements, including 24/7 gym access, spin classes, and a new café servery.

“Later this year we’ll be opening up the gym 24/7 to our members. In addition to using equipment in the gym, members will also be able to access virtual group fitness classes ‘on demand’ around the clock as well.

“This is all about improving our service offering, meeting demand, and providing more opportunity for the community to be active,” the Mayor said.

Other improvements will include:

  • The refurbishment of the foyer and reception area including a larger merchandise range, and more tables and chairs.
  • Heating in the outdoor change rooms
  • Improvements/facelift to the indoor change rooms

Sunshine Leisure Centre is located at 5 Kennedy Street, Sunshine, and has a range of membership options to suit all needs.
