May 20, 2024

The Y Northern Territory has been awarded the management contract for the three City of Darwin aquatics facilities for the next three years – Parap Swimming Pool, Nightcliff Swimming Pool, and the newly developed Casuarina Aquatics and Leisure Centre

The City of Darwin CEO Simone Saunders said she was thrilled to appoint the Y to manage the facilities.

“The Y has been managing our pools for the last six years, offering a range of recreational and leisure options for the community and swimmers of all abilities,” Ms Saunders said.

“We are very proud of our pools in Parap and Nightcliff which offer friendly, safe environments to enjoy a range of water-based activities, as well as a variety of programs for all ages.

“I am confident The Y will bring the same high-quality management skills and expertise to the Casuarina Aquatic and Leisure Centre when it opens soon,” she said.

Y Northern Territory CEO said this is fantastic news for the Y, for all of our amazing aquatics staff, and for our communities.

“The Y Northern Territory are excited to continue our partnership with the City of Darwin to manage the community pools and to continue supporting Territorians to lead active and healthy lives.

“The Parap Swimming Pool, Nightcliff Swimming Pool and Casuarina Aquatic and Leisure Centre are vital community assets that provide people of all ages and backgrounds opportunities to be healthy, active and connected to their community.

“City of Darwin’s investment and vision for the Casuarina Aquatic and Leisure Centre redevelopment is hugely exciting for Darwin locals and tourists alike and we look forward to operating a modern, family-friendly and inclusive facility for everyone in the community to enjoy,” she said.

The newly redeveloped Casuarina Aquatic and Leisure Centre opens on the 13th of July with an exciting Grand Opening Event 11am – 3pm, then full operating hours from the 14 July.
