    Community pools sparkle with funding

    4/11/2016 4:00 PM
     
    • 95 regional local governments share in $2.92 million pool and water playground funding
    • Part of $13.2 million Community Pools Revitalisation Program
    • This is a Liberal National Government's Royalties for Regions program

    Regional pools will be sparkling over the summer thanks to an injection of funding through the Community Pools Revitalisation Program, made possible by the Liberal National Government's Royalties for Regions program.

     

    Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies said the program allowed eligible regional local governments to apply for up to $32,000 towards pool upgrades, maintenance, equipment, staff development or a reduction of pool entry costs and $10,000 for water playgrounds.

     

    This funding round has approved 95 applications totalling $2.92 million for 91 pools and four water playgrounds in areas where there is no pool.

     

    Ms Davies said community pools brought people together, especially in regional areas.

     

    "Pools are great for exercise and playing sport, but it's often community connection people get from community pools and water playgrounds," the Minister said.

     

    "Pools and water playgrounds across the State are a place for families and individuals to come together, especially over the summer months."

     

    Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said enhancing community pool facilities and services supported greater social and economic benefits in regional communities.

     

    "In regional areas, community pools help people of all ages keep active as well as staying connected to their local community," Mr Redman said.

     

    "Royalties for Regions is helping to improve important community infrastructure and services so more people can live, work and invest in regional Western Australia."
