Melbourne Bayside Council supports hot water swimming pool plan and development of privately funded wellness center


Bayside City Council has approved a site at the northeast corner of Melbourne’s Brighton Golf Course as the preferred site for a public hot-water swimming pool.

Agreed upon at a pre-Christmas Council meeting, the agreement to build the new facility at the Brighton Golf Course site followed exploration of seven sites in Bayside, including Thomas Street in Hampton.

In a press release, Council said the supporting site next to the Brighton Golf Course car park “has been selected as the best location for access and protection of the local and residential environment”.

The statement added that the public golf course would remain a par-67 with the careful realignment of two holes, adding that “Council approval of a location is an important step for this project, which according to a study by independent feasibility, would probably be widely used by Bayside. proportionately older population and disabled or injured people.

“The proposed hot water pool (will be) suitable for all ages, thanks to a movable floor in the main pool to facilitate children’s swimming lessons, while a second fixed-depth clinical pool allows aquatic programming and therapeutic activities at the same time. . To ensure access and inclusion for all, changing rooms would be included for those with complex or high needs.

Wellness center supported by private investment
As part of the development, the Board has agreed that Leisure Management Services, the current tenant of the Brighton Golf Course, independently finance, develop and operate a wellness center in the northeast corner of the course to complement the hot water pool.

This proposed facility will include hot springs and plunge pools, as well as a sauna, spa, snow room and reflexology walk through the natural environment.
