Stonnington City Council Says...

The cost of aquatic facilities increased due to additional pool staff, increased utility costs and enhanced security at Prahran Aquatic Centre. Also attributing to the cost was a decrease in visitation at Harold Holt Swim Centre due to the three-month closure of the hydro-pool for capital improvement works. The cost of aquatic facilities includes both indoor and outdoor facilities.
