Dickson Aquatic Centre is inviting Canberrans to #restartsummer this Australia Day long weekend.


With the sun out and temperatures this weekend expected to be in the 30’s it is a perfect time to gather your friends and family and come to enjoy the pools.


We have three pools and a splash park to enjoy.  The shaded park like surrounds, free BBQ access and generous outdoor space sets Dickson Aquatic Centre apart from other facilities locally.  For $19.50 entry for a family of two adults and up to three children, it represents good value for families.


Usually, the Dickson Aquatic Centre is the perfect place to swim, relax and play all summer long. But, December and January have been marred with closures and program cancellations at the pool due to air quality. 


While this is nothing compared to the experiences of those in the fire zones, dealing with the sense of dismay and helplessness of the bushfire, drought (and storm) catastrophes happening around us, from the indoors has left many Canberrans feeling flat.


Our community is very important to us and one of the magical things about managing our Centre is the social outlet we can provide.  The school holidays have been a time when kids will learn to swim and play at the pool for days.


We cannot wait to welcome our community back to the pool this weekend.
