Latrobe City Council will continue to operate the Moe and Yallourn North Outdoor Pools following a review of the 2020/21 season.
The review of the 2020/21 season found that 9120 visitors attended the outdoor pools and visitations were slightly down from the previous season due to the impacts of COVID-19 restrictions.
At the 5 July Ordinary Council Meeting, Council voted to open the Moe and Yallourn North Outdoor Pools from the last Saturday in November through to Labour Day in March, annually.
All outdoor pools will open 2pm to 7pm on days forecast to be 25-29.9 degrees or above; open 12pm to 7pm on days forecast to be 30 degrees or above; and close on days forecast to be 24.9 degrees or below.
Entry to Yallourn North Outdoor Pool will remain free.
Latrobe City Council Mayor, Cr Sharon Gibson knows the value of the pools to not only the Moe and Yallourn North communities, but also the broader municipality.
“Outdoor pools are places where our community can learn to swim, develop water safety skills and spend treasured time with family and friends, and that is why Council is proud to continue to support these community assets,” she said.
