On the 15th January, Council will host a special Family Day at the Botany Aquatic Centre. The day will include entertainment for all ages and everything will be included in the entry price to the pool.
There has been very little promotion of the pool in recent years but, with the appointment of a Recreational Officer, a program has been initiated to raise the profile of the pool over the summer months.There will be two inflatable play items in the big pool as well as live entertainment. The inflatables will float around between 11am and 3pm and there will be live entertainment, which will start after lunch around 2pm.
Council has booked a group called Three Wishez, who gained popularity and a whole lot of fans with when they took part in the X-factor, the latest television show that seeks out new talent. They made it in to the top four. There will also be entertainment for the young ones and we have secured the Jitterbugs, a popular children’s act. To add to the fun there will also be balloon benders, wandering magicians and a craft corner.
Then on again on Australia Day there will also be inflatables in the pool with a kids show by the Livelyhood. It will be a much small version of what’s on offer on the 15th. Because of our close proximity to the City and beach areas, it was decided not compete with all the Australia Day activities funded by the State Government.
