Update 9 July 2019

The Hobsons Bay Aquatic Strategy 2019-30 was endorsed at the Ordinary Council Meeting held on 9 July 2019 and outlines how Council will deliver aquatic facilities until 2030.

As outlined in the Aquatic Strategy, Hobsons Bay will provide high quality and accessible aquatic facilities that encourage a healthy active and connected community. To achieve this vision, Council will deliver three objectives:

Objective one: High quality facilities that best provide for the community of Hobsons Bay in the east and west of the municipality.

Objective two: Accessible, affordable and inclusive facilities and participation outcomes.

Objective three: well-planned, well maintained and well managed facilities.

Alongside these objectives are recommended development options that include two aquatic centres, one in the east and one in the west of the city. More specifically, this approach includes:

  • A new aquatic facility, proposed location at Bruce Comben Reserve, Altona Meadows to service the western end of the municipality
  • The construction of water play and youth facilities at McCormack Park to replace the Laverton Swim and Fitness Centre
  • The expansion of Bayfit Leisure Centre, Altona North to service the eastern end of the municipality

You can read the Aquatic Strategy here.

The Aquatic Strategy was developed with feedback from the community on the Draft Report (available here or in the Document Library on the right) and initial input from the community in 2018 when you told us how you currently use the aquatic facilities in Hobsons Bay and what you would like to see in the future (report available here or in the Document Library on the right) .
