The new centre in Besgrove Street has a 50-metre indoor pool, learn-to-swim pool, warm water program pool, spa, sauna, and steam room. Other features are multi-purpose rooms for health and fitness classes and a gymnasium.
A wellness centre will have consulting suites for Peninsula Health, including exercise physiology, dietetics, counselling, physiotherapy, podiatry and occupational therapy.
Disability access will include ramps and hoist to the main pool and warm water pool, family change rooms for those with disabilities or special needs.
“I could not be more excited than I am today announcing the open date for Yawa. This long-awaited, wonderful facility will offer something for everyone: from baby swimming for our littlest community members to Momentum active classes for our older residents,” the mayor Cr Despi O’Connor said.
“I can’t wait to see our community enjoy this new facility.”
