Summer just became a whole lot more fun for the youth of Red Cliffs, with big plans to offer free access these school holidays now official!

From Saturday 17 December, Red Cliffs residents aged 17 years or younger can enjoy a day by the pool free of charge, with the offer extending right the way through to Sunday 29 January 2023.

This pilot project has been driven by the local Red Cliffs community, with Aligned Leisure, Hands Up Mallee and Mildura Rural City Council all coming together to help bring the idea to life.

With limited activities for young people within Red Cliffs and transport into Mildura a barrier for many, this project aims to provide a safe, fun and connected environment for young people to enjoy – whilst gaining the many added benefits of visiting a public pool through keeping active and socialising with friends.

Adding to the fun this Summer are plans to also host a range of activity days throughout January, with consultation now underway with local youth groups to hear what they’d like to see.

Speaking of the trial, Aligned Leisure’s Mildura Leisure Manager, Caitlin Simmons said “The Red Cliffs Pool has a long history of being a place of joy and great summertime memories for a lot of locals, and with the river now out of action this year, it’s great to be able to support the community in this way by providing a safe environment for everyone to enjoy.”

“The collective efforts of Mildura Rural City Council and Hands Up Mallee to work with us in delivering this trial has been outstanding, and we’re looking forward to the official launch of the trial this weekend, plus the many fun activities to follow in coming weeks.” said Miss Simmons.

With youth entry now free, plus free spectator entry and great rates on visit passes or memberships for adults, the Red Cliffs Pool is the place to be this Summer so come on down and have some fun with the team from Aligned Leisure – We can’t wait to see you here!
