Streets Beach and Aquativity maintenance works

South Bank Corporation is undertaking important maintenance and refurbishment works at the Parkland’s Main Lagoon, Aquativity and the nearby public Plaza male and female toilets from early June 2024 until late July 2024.

The Streets Beach and Aquativity scope of works includes the inspection, cleaning and sealing of pool linings, as well as cleaning of the rocks in the Aquativity stream and surrounding surfaces.

Streets Beach and Aquativity will be closed and drained for a six-week period for routine works to proceed. Liner maintenance work historically takes place mid-year due to potentially drier weather conditions and fewer swimmers in the winter months.

The Plaza toilet works include the upgrade of distribution switchboards and maintenance of plumbing and electrical services inside the male and female toilets. The toilets will remain closed for the duration of the works.

All works are being managed by South Bank Corporation. For any questions, please email feedback@south-bank.net.au
