Opening hours

All our centres are accredited Watch Around Water facilities, meaning there are guidelines (see below) that must be followed when visiting our locations.

  • Watch Around Water guidelines
    Active Merri-bek facilities are an accredited Watch Around Water facility. The Water Around Water guidelines have been developed by Aquatics & Recreation Victoria and Life Saving Victoria to educate the public about adequate supervision and to encourage parent / guardians to take on this responsibility when visiting a public aquatic facility. Therefore, the following safe supervision policies must be adhered to.

    Children under 5 years old

    • Children will be issued a pink wristband from reception upon entry.
    • Children under 5 years old must be constantly supervised by a parent/guardian.
    • Adequate supervision requires the parent/guardian to accompany the child in the water and remain within arm's reach of the child at all times.
    • Parent to child ratio: 1 parent to 2 children (babies in prams included in this ratio).

    Children under 10 years old

    • Will be issued a yellow wristband from reception upon entry.
    • Children under 10 years old will not be admitted without an appropriate parent / guardian.
    • The parent/guardian must be 16 years or over and adhere to all conditions of entry.
    • Children under 10 years old must be constantly supervised by a parent/guardian while in the aquatic area of the centre.
    • The parent/guardian must position himself or herself to have a clear view of the child with no physical or structural barriers between them and the child.
    • Parent to child ratio: 1 parent to 4 children.

    Children 10 years and older

    • For children 10 years and older, parents must use their knowledge of the child's swimming ability to determine the level of supervision required.
    • Parent /guardians are not required to be present in the centre.

    Important facts

    Here are some facts you need to be aware of:

    • The supervision of children in aquatic facilities is not the sole responsibility of lifeguards.
    • Lifeguards are employed on a 1:100 ratio; this is based on the expectation that parents will provide direct supervision of child.
    • Parents are required to provide the constant and direct supervision needed for young children.
