Werribee Outdoor Pool live feed from Facebook will appear soon.

Please note, when the venue reaches its full capacity RED, a lock out may be required to maintain the safety of our patrons and members. Information relating to our lock out procedure is outlined here.

A lock out is when we do not allow any new patron/s into the venue as it is considered at full capacity. The safety of all our patrons, staff and visitors are our priority at all times, and for public safety reasons a lock out will be initiated.

Werribee Outdoor Pool conduct lock outs during peak periods to manage the safety of all visitors. A lock out will occur mainly in the aquatic areas and is most likely to happen on hot days when there are several hundred people using aquatic facilities.

There is no set time that a lock out will run for as it largely depends on how many patrons exit the impacted area before more patrons are let in. 

If you are a member with a booking, or here to use the gym, please proceed to the Service desk.

Werribee Outdoor Pool makes changes in the off-season.

This year Werribee Outdoor Pool open it’s doors to the people of Wyndham and those that travel to the western suburbs of Melbourne to visit our great community on Saturday, 1st October 2022 .

In the colder months which began this year in May, the outdoor pool begins it’s cycle of changes to get the space ready for the next season.

From May 1st to September 30th, 2022, Werribee Outdoor Pool went through quite a number of changes to beautify it’s space. A place that is famously known in this community and where family and friends gather to rest, relax and play.

Without the shades and sails, this area would just be another outdoor pool. The cascading blue shades and sail of Werribee Outdoor Pool, both resembling clear vibrant blue waves and calming seas, have under-gone refurbishment and a deep clean. With upgrades such as replacement wiring and umbrella arms to compliment, this brings more life to the area.  

Bring on Werribee Outdoor Pools new concourse! Talk about a transformation. The top layer of the concourse was grinded back to assess the quality of the concrete. The assessment concluded that there was a need for further preparations, of cutting into the concrete and relaying surfaces to accommodate the new layer of coating. The surface layer of the entire concourse was coated in a “overcrete resurfacing product”. This product is non-slip and decorative. Making safety a beautiful thing.

Everyone has that “old wooden bench”. The decorative piece in their backyard that is useful but you really need to replace it. Werribee Outdoor Pool has been in the community for so long that we too have that old wooden bench. Out with the old and in with the new! Well sort of. It is a great bench but needed to be updated so the space can be better utilised. The bench has been coated with an aluminium solution that is cooler in summer.

The team are working hard to get the pool ready for Saturday 1st October, workforce planning, cleaning, restocking and grand preparations. The teams are excited to see the Outdoor Pool open it’s doors to Wyndham. It’s going to be a great season.

WynActive team members were successful in two categories and highly commended in another at the 2022 Aquatics and Recreation Victoria (ARV) awards on Friday 2 September.
The Membership Sales Award was won by Jenna Smith while Caitlin McGraw took home the Pool Lifeguard Award. WynActive was also highly commended in the Watch Around Water Award category, a space in which the organisation has dominated over the last six years.
WynActive CEO, Alison Dixon, said the ARV award success was due recognition for theorganisation’s focus on providing the City of Wyndham community with the highest level ofservice and safety through its three recreation facilities.
“I am incredibly proud and inspired by the dedication of our entire staff team to provide our patrons with the best possible experience every time they visit one of our centres,” she said. “The award success again acknowledges our leadership in the industry and I congratulate Jenna and Caitlin, together with all our award nominees.”

Ms Dixon added that the WynActive staff team had shown extraordinary loyalty after the COVID-19 lockdowns, with many returning to their roles when the centres were able to reopen, despite the devastation of being stood down for a significant period.
“We did not qualify for the Jobkeeper payments during that time, so we were forced to stand down most of our staff. The fact that so many of those team members not only returned, but threw themselves into rebuilding our business, is huge credit to their integrity and character. I honestly believe the WynActive staff and management team is the best in the state,” said Ms Dixon.
Membership Sales award winner, Jenna Smith was acknowledged for consistently demonstrating WynActive’s mission to build healthy lives, through delivery of the values of Safety, Innovation and Service. Her passion to lead, coupled with her desire to succeed is a driving force of the positive sales culture in WynActive centres.
She was responsible for bringing the noise and excitement back into centres after the lockdowns and has become an important source of insight into the sales process for other team members.
WynActive also took out the Pool Lifeguard award for the second consecutive year, with Caitlin McGraw successful in the highly competitive category.
Caitlin joined WynActive in 2019 and has progressed to mentor many new staff after moving into the position of Leading Lifeguard and Centre Care Manager. Caitlin demonstrates a passion for safety and education by consistently offering to undertake the role of Watch Around Water ambassador, using her knowledge as a swim teacher to support the delivery of this message.
Caitlin was recognised as bringing a unique, fresh perspective to the lifeguard team and having the ability to balance the need for patron satisfaction and prioritisation of safety.
On the focus of safety, Ms Dixon emphasised that WynActive’s record was exceptional and that the proactive approach was a key to maintaining excellence.
“Again we were commended for our commitment to Watch Around Water and that is satisfying for our staff and also patrons, who take safety in our centres so seriously. We invest not just money, but a great deal of time and effort into ensuing we maintain the highest standards of water safety possible,” she said.
“We are driven to always improve in an effort to provide support to the wider industry to help continuously raise the bar in the area of safety.”
WynActive manages AquaPulse, Eagle Stadium and Werribee Outdoor Pool on behalf of Wyndham City.
