Aquatic Change Rooms Now Open

(Campbelltown City Council)
18 May 2019 04:00am
Recent works on the Aquatic Changing spaces have been completed. These works aimed to improve the air circulation in the area to provide increased fresh air and extraction to reduce humidity. The works required full ceiling removal and re-installment. As a result, these changing spaces now have a fresher, more comfortable temperature. We thank patrons for their patience during this time.
