Richmond Pool Party gets bigger and better

Almost 1000 visitors donned their cossies and sunscreen to join the summer celebrations at Richmond Swimming Centre’s Pool Party on Saturday, 17 February 2018.

Dunk TankThe Dunk Tank was real hit with children and adults alike, with Hawkesbury Mayor, Councillor Mary Lyons-Buckett and Councillor Nathan Zamprogno both taking a dunk. Councillor Emma-Jane Garrow was keen to help out by throwing the ball to trigger the dunk button.

“”The dunk was going all day and lots of kids kept coming back for another go - the brave little souls,” Mayor Lyons-Buckett said.

“It has been a great way to connect the community and celebrate the end of summer, with fun activities that included a jumping castle maze, a giant water slide and free snow cones.

“The Councillors and I had a great time meeting everyone at the pool.”

Jumping CastleIn addition to free entry to Richmond Swimming Centre, families also enjoyed craft activities, giant games – Chess, Lego, Connect 4, Jenga, outdoor games – tug-o-war, sack races, three legged races, water and spoon races, helmet bucket challenge and a balloon artist.

Richmond Swimming Centre will continue their extended opening hours for summer, staying open until 8pm seven days a week until Wednesday, 28 February.

Located at East Market Street, Richmond, the Richmond Swimming Centre includes a shaded baby pool, an intermediate pool, a six lane Olympic pool and change rooms as well as a shaded children’s playground.
