Pools MR.jpg

Residents are encouraged to help shape the future of aquatic services within the Gannawarra by taking part in Council’s Draft Gannawarra Aquatic Strategy community engagement process.

Developed following feedback from residents and key stakeholders via surveys and on-site meetings held in late 2020, technical assessments of all Council and community-managed facilities in the municipality and the development of a strategic directions options analysis report, the draft document explores the following strategic directions:

  • The redevelopment of the Kerang Swimming Pool to include a new indoor integrated aquatic centre;
  • Development of a new swimming pool complex in Cohuna, featuring an outdoor leisure lagoon, water play space and learn to swim area, to replace the current facility;
  • Maintain the Koondrook Swimming Pool under current management arrangements; and
  • Work with Department of Environment Land Water and Planning and community asset committees to consider the future of the Leitchville and Quambatook swimming pools.
