Kids keep cool at Aqualink this summer

11 Jan 2018

Whitehorse’s youngest residents are invited to get down to their local Aqualink and take part in a fun-filled school holiday program this summer.

Whitehorse Councillor Tina Liu said Aqualink Box Hill and Aqualink Nunawading had a range of school holiday activities for children to enjoy until Thursday 25 January 2018.

“Kids can keep cool and entertained over summer at Aqualink and all activities are free with a standard child’s entry fee,” Cr Liu said.

Every Monday to Friday of the holidays at Aqualink Box Hill from 12.30pm to 4pm, children can enjoy jumping off the dive boards, swinging and splashing on the Tarzan and bouncing on the famous Red Dragon inflatable with the activities rotating every half hour. All activities are suitable for children aged six and over who are able to swim in deep water.

Younger children can also play on the Splash Pad with large tipping bucket, water sprays, a small slide and a toddler pool. There’s fun for the whole family in the family leisure pool with beach entry and water jets. There is also an air conditioned indoor stadium that people can use to beat the heat and make a booking for a social badminton, basketball, soccer or table tennis game. Normal booking rates apply for use of the indoor stadium.

“Aqualink Nunawading also becomes a great fun zone during school holidays, and it’s so wonderful to see children being active and socialising rather than sitting at electronic devices,” Cr Liu said.

Aqualink Nunawading offers its holiday activities from Monday-Friday. There’s an inflatable for small children 1.4m tall or under, from 12.30pm-1.15pm, a large inflatable is open from 1.15pm-2.15pm and a Tarzan rope available from 2.15pm-3pm.

Both Aqualink facilities are great places to bring the kids, have a swim or relax on the grassed outdoor areas. They are also wonderful places to escape the heat on hot days.
