Suggestion for Pascoe Vale Outdoor Pool - future plan to make part of it indoors and part outdoors similar to Fawkner pool. This would allow the pool to be utilized all year around by the public and swimming programs. The main pool could become indoors with the other pools at the back as outdoor pools with some sliding door that could open up in the summer months. Thanks.
Moreland City Council, you say no decision has been made yet about Pascoe Vale pool, but I’ve been informed by one of your representatives on the aquatic consulting committee, that it is pretty much dead and buried as an operating pool in Moreland once Oak Park’s redevelopment has been completed. So, you will say we can just travel the 1.5kms to Oak Park pool to use that one. But unless you have a car, how are you meant to get there on a 30+ degree day? Oak Park pool (just like Coburg pool) is not serviced by any form of public transport from Pascoe Vale. So if a family doesn’t have a car, ... Read More...
I'm going to just come out and say what I've been thinking the last 12 years. Close Fawkner, Pascoe Vale and Coburg Outdoor as all are extremely outdated and pretty useless for many aquatic activities and sports. Focus on renovating Coburg indoor and add a 50m indoor pool, hydro pool and family area. Still have large doors to open for summer so people can sit outside. Even consider a diving pool perhaps down the track. There is literally nothing in Moreland to suit swimming clubs amateur, professional or masters. Oak park wil be great but still not indoors which is sad as it is a mass... Read More...
This is a cleverly crafted exercise by Moreland Council in designing a public relations campaign to shoe-horn the community into the decision(s) Council wants to make. I do wonder why we are asked here to provide our "idea". Surely we should be asked for a "comment" on the background information provided by Council. There is no preamble for the community that presents the case for us to be providing our "ideas". So my comments follow. The provision of localised leisure facilities for Melburnians, including Morelanders is crucial to the ongoing health and vitality of ourse... Read More...
With the rate at which Pascoe Vale's population has grown over the past few years and continues to grow with no sign of slowing due to all the townhouses being built, it really needs to retain and extend it's outdoor pool facilities. It should have a complex built like Coburg, Brunswick and Fawkner already have and what Oak Park is now having built. It needs to have the outdoor pool heated for all year round use, an indoor pool to cater for swimming lessons, a gym, group fitness class room and child care for parents to make the most of the complex. I know of many families in the area w... Read More...
I agree with a lot of comments made about the Pascoe Vale Pool. With population growing, townhouses going up everywhere that in some streets there's one after another, we need to keep and upgrade the pool. Growing up in Brunswick, where there's hardly any open space, except the street. I love the pool and the lawns around it and wish they hadn't moved the fence. It quiet and family friendly whereas people are on top of each other in summer like at Brunswick. I agree with some of the others when they say have a 10 year strategy where the pool is fixed in stages like they did at Bru... Read More...
Close outdoor pool in North Coburg and turn it into a skate park, netball court. (Potentially relocate oxygen to this area). There are enough pools. Turn building over to Community use - old young intercultural - or employment agencies - Training etc . Street art, business incubator for young people. Does not need to be renovated just safe and with toilets.
The Coburg Olympic is a sleeping beauty at the moment. It's great to see renovations going on, but the pool will remain underused as long as there is no heating and no predictable opening hours. With Shayyer's Pentridge Development going ahead now, we'll have 1000 (!) new flats in walking distance of the pool. So, here's my "idea": Since Shayer have not shown much concern for the community so far (building 19-floor towers in spite of numerous complaints and objections by residents, pressuring council, cutting the much-loved Champ street tree in spite of protests etc.) -...

I swim at Coburg Leisure centre and would love to see the following as part of this centre: - longer pool opening hours, particularly an earlier start on weekends (eg. 6am on Saturdays and Sundays) - an additional indoor pool for lessons, so that more lanes can be freed up for lap swimming in the 25m pool - in an ideal world, it would also be great to have an outdoor 50m pool as part of the same complex

I would like to see Pascoe Vale Outdoor Pool to be given renovations and seen in the long term aquatic plan to be an active resource under Moreland Councils long term plan. Pascoe Vale Outdoor Pool has been an excellent resource in our community and is used by many families including families from the Pascoe Vale Primary School next door where my kids and many others go after school during the summer months. There is now the big community centre being built on the site next door and they have a large hall there already which makes this area a great hub for leisure and community activities. I have ...

My comments and ideas for Pascoe Vale Outdoor Pool. First, thank you for giving me the opportunity to provide my comments. Appreciated.

Pascoe Vale Outdoor Pool has been an excellent resource in our community and is used by many families including families from the Pascoe Vale Primary School next door, where kids and many others go after school during the summer months.

Hello, I love Pascoe Vale Outdoor Pool and would like to see the pool be renovated and opened for longer hours. I always take my kids after school in the summer months with some of the other mums at school and the kids love it. It would be great if they had a café there for the parents to get together while the kids swim and maybe extend the little kids area with more water equipment as the little toddlers love to play there. I hope to see Pascoe Vale Outdoor pool continue its operation in the long term as it is a very loved place to go in the summer by the local community. It would be also good t... Read More...
Some feedback on Pascoe Vale Outdoor Swimming Pool. This place has been an Icon in Pascoe Vale for many years and loved by the whole community. It is very family friendly and a great area to spend a summers day. It would be good to see some swimming programs start up for the kids in particular to tie in with the local schools in Pascoe Vale so we can come and see the kids have their lessons and carnivals there. I can see they are building a large community centre next door so I think this will attract a lot more people to the area and to the pool if Council does some maintenance to the pool such ...
