Head into the warmer months with a big splash at the Adelaide Aquatic Centre’s ‘Splash into Summer’ Family Fun Day this Sunday 20th November.

It will be a fun-filled day of activity in and around the water, including a kids’ best beach outfit prize so dig out those Hawaiian shirts and sombreros.

Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood will officially launch the Centre’s reopening on the day.

“The new roof and general refit has created a light, contemporary feel at the Centre. The Family Fun Day gives you a chance to see what’s new while enjoying some great entertainment,” Stephen said.

There’s plenty for the kids to do including face painting, a bouncy castle, story-telling and pool games. They can even decorate a bucket sun hat at the craft sessions that they can take home.

Adults can try out the fitness classes both in and out of the pool and Aquatic Centre staff will be on hand to provide information about memberships, what’s available at the Centre and Swim School.

There’s also the chance to win a family holiday to the Gold Coast.

Entry is by a gold coin donation which will go to the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation to help support critically ill children and their families at the Hospital.

“The WCH Foundation is proud to be supported by an event that showcases a fine community asset that promotes health and well-being, and provides a place where children can learn to be comfortable and safe in the water,” said Teresa Whitehorn, WCH Foundation Business Development Manager.

The Foundation’s BeBe Bear will be wandering around throughout the day as will lifeguards and hula hoop artists. South Australia’s Laura Hill will provide a musical backdrop with her summery, uplifting tunes.

Councillor Clearihan, a long-term supporter of the Centre, said, “The Family Fun Day will give you and your family a value-for-money action-packed day out while supporting a worthy cause.”

The Splash Into Summer Family Fun Day will run at the North Adelaide Aquatic Centre from 10am until 3pm.

“The Centre is much-loved by the people of Adelaide and we’re aiming for it to continue to be a fantastic facility for all ages to enjoy as we mark its new start as a community leisure centre,” Stephen said.
