Major upgrades to Parkinson Aquatic Centre have helped City Venue Management (CVM) win it the Jonas Leisure Facility of the Year Award at the Australian Leisure Facilities Association Queensland (ALFAQ) 2019 Awards.
The barracades came down last Friday on the new 2,500sq.m covered car park situated between Emu Street and Crow Lane, after 24 weeks of construction. When it does rain in Longreach in the future, the roofline will harvest a vast amount of rainwater.
Appreciated by locals for the many family friendly features of the facility, the Parkinson Aquatic Centre project has now also been recognised by Royal Life Saving – Australia for the many safety features incorporated into the design of the facility.
New Parkinson Aquatic Centre head swimming coach Matt Brown said he was looking forward to tapping into the region’s talent at the world class Rackley Swimming-managed facility.
International swimming coach Matt Brown will be training some of China’s elite Olympians and Queensland swimming talent at an aquatic centre constructed by Spantech.
