Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre aka PARC in Frankston is a sizeable indoor swimming pool and recreational water play venue catering for all ages.
PARC in Frankston
This year-round entertainment hub consists of two lap pools, a heated exercise pool, shallow wading pool for the pre-swimmers, and a children's pool with water sprays and jets for splashy fun.
The centre’s greatest feature for kids is the generous aquatic playground complete with jets, valves, spray nozzles, a spinning water wheel and a giant tipping bucket to pour water down onto smiley faces at set times.
PARC's Aquatic Playground
There are also two water slides in operation at PARC; the Constrictor™ as well as Australia’s first ever PARC Python Waterslide.
During school holidays, PARC offers even more fun for kids by adding the Splash Town, a huge inflatable course on which children can attempt to "beat the clock" to reach the end in record time. The over 6s can also have a go in an Aqua Zorb Ball!
Splash Town in the school holidays
PARC is undercover, heated on wintery days and nice and cool on hot days therefore suitable for all weather conditions.
Please hungry tummies in the PARC café, all located within the same complex. Lunch packs are available during school holidays are great value: nuggets and chips packs for $5. Healthier options are also available such as sandwiches, wraps and fruit.
PARC’s changing facilities are spacious and clean with the ability to choose a family change room if preferred.
