Aquatic Leisure Centre Plan

Improvements to the Leisure Centres Earlier this year the Mooneey Valley City Council did a survey regarding the future of the Leisure Centres in the local area. The City of Moonee Valley currently provides aquatic and leisure services to the local community through the Ascot Vale Leisure Centre (AVLC), East Keilor Leisure Centre (EKLC) and Queens Park Swimming Pool (QPSP). The Windy Hill Health and Fitness (WHFC) is operated by the Essendon Football Club. Through the feedback from the survey, and speaking to facility staff and the local community, they are hoping to identify key areas for improvement at each of the facilities. Below is a quick breakdown of some of the areas that need improvements. Ascot Vale Leisure Centre (AVLC) Limited lane availability for lap swimming. No indoor or outdoor water play equipment/features. Better Pools with disability access. The existing spa is aging. Change rooms require updating. The group fitness room requires an upgrade. Improve the facility quality and customer experience through improved maintenance and some refurbishment. East Keilor Leisure Centre (EKLC) The facility layout is poor All the aquatic areas are aging and need significant improvement There is limited opportunity for older adults or rehabilitation activities in aquatic areas.

Water play options are limited, the outdoor pool closed for seven months of the year. Facility quality is impacting on customer experience and financial performance. Queens Park Swimming Pool (QPSP) Change rooms quality is poor. Limited shaded area. Lack of contemporary water play areas for children Quality of the entry area and kiosk is poor.

Drivers travelling through the area are advised to seek an alternate route. https://twitter.com/JoelCrean/status/479010227283439616/photo/1   For all our morning Indoor Boot Camp clients, we have already had a few people ask about the best way to get the studio for this mornings classes and that they may be running late.  Because of the incident and traffic being unpredictable, we will extend this morning 45min boot camp sessions to an hour, and/or for the clients that do travel to the studio from the Flemington and Kensington area if you wish to reschedule your session and come to one of our later boot camps or to tomorrows session you can.
