Pool season brings a wave of events

With summer on the horizon it means pool season is about to get underway in the Barossa.

The 2019-20 season will kick off from Saturday 30 November at the Nuriootpa War Memorial Swimming Pool and is set to run until Tuesday 31 March, with a range of family friendly events planned during the season.

Special events during the season include an outdoor movie screening of Aladdin on 7 December, Australia Day Splash on 26 January and family Triathlon events on 31 January, 16 February and 15 March.

Barossa Council manager of community projects Rebecca Tappert said, for families with school aged children, a day at the pool is a great low-cost outing.

Kids under 16 admitted free of charge during the school holidays between 12pm - 6pm (operating on days where forecast is 28 degrees or above).

"With the pre-season repair work successfully completed, we are now really looking forward to the community enjoying the much-loved Nuri Pool this season," said Ms Tappert said.

The Nuriootpa Pool is open for morning lap swimming Monday to Saturday, and daily in the afternoons for general use until 6pm.

The Williamstown Swimming Pool will follow suit the day after, opening from Sunday 1 December.
