Moreton Bay pool price freeze for 12 months

Posted: 1pm 11 Aug 2020

Entry prices at the Moreton Bay Region’s swimming pools are being frozen for the next 12 months.

Council’s aquatic facility management contract partner Belgravia Leisure said the decision was made despite revenue losses as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.

Belgravia QLD State Manager Dan Cullen said it was an easy decision when assessing prices.

“We’re putting our customers first during these difficult times and appreciate that every dollar counts at the moment,” he explains.

“I’m proud to say that adult, child, family, disability and senior pool entry prices will remain the same for the next 12 months.

“This means our loyal customers don’t have to pay a cent more to enjoy their local pool.”

Free classes

Swimming pools are running free learn-to-swim classes and offering a free 14-day trial to help get people back in the water after being stuck at home during lockdown.

“I want to assure customers Belgravia is remaining vigilant about social distancing and strictly following all health directives to prevent any community transmission,” says Mr Cullen.

Mayor Peter Flannery has welcomed the announcement and is encouraging residents to use the heated pools during winter months.

“Belgravia Leisure’s decision to not increase pool prices for another 12 months will come at a cost to this business but reflects their commitment to our region and shows an understanding that everyone’s doing it tough at the moment,” the Mayor says.

“Part of this price freeze is possible because of Council’s swift decision earlier this year to cover utility costs for our pool and leisure centres across the region.

“This meant Moreton Bay pools opened before any other in Queensland. Swimming is one of the best ways to keep fit and healthy while also observing social distancing.”
