As the COVID-19 situation progresses, our priority remains the safety of our patrons and staff. With the season due to end at most of the Newcastle Pools in late April, a decision has been made to bring forward the closure of the Lambton, Mayfield, Wallsend and Stockton Pools to close of business Sunday 22nd March.
If your child is currently enrolled in the learn to swim program, a credit will be applied to your account for next season.
For those with visit passes, we are extending the expiry date of your passes by one year.
We’d like to take the time to thank our patrons & staff who have been extraordinary through this season. We hope to see you all next summer!
