Herries Street carpark

On Monday, 27 November, the Herries Street carpark that services the Junior School and the Aquatic Centre will close. It is expected to reopen at the end of Term 1, 2024 (end of March).

We are upgrading the Herries Street carpark which will prioritise the safety of children and families. Once completed, traffic congestion will be reduced, and pedestrian flow enhanced to improve the overall parking experience of our Junior School and Aquatic Centre families.

Car parking for Learn to Swim families will be available on Trustees Oval on the corner of Herries and Mackenzie Streets. When exiting the carpark, vehicles will need to turn left onto Herries Street. Please follow all pedestrian and vehicle signage. If there is heavy rain, we may need to temporarily close the carpark and if this occurs, Learn to Swim families will be alerted as quickly as possible.

Pedestrian access to the pool will be via the new ramp on Herries Street.
