From mid-2023 the popular Prahran Aquatic Centre will close for an expected three-month refurbishment. Open since 1963 and previously updated in the 90s, the pools and buildings are showing signs of wear and tear and need a refresh.
The works will involve emptying and repairing the 50-metre and toddler pools, upgrading the pool surrounds and completing minor repairs to the grandstand seating. We’ll also update the tiles and fittings in the change rooms and make improvements to the spa and sauna areas.
The refurbishment works will bring the centre up to a serviceable level for the mid-term, with a full redevelopment planned in the future through the Princes Gardens masterplan implementation.
All going to plan and with the weather being kind, we hope to see pool patrons back swimming laps in spring 2023.
