|Riverway Lower Lagoon Closure|
The Riverway lower lagoon will be temporarily closed from Monday 9 October to early December 2023 for important safety upgrades, reopening in time for the December school holidays. The upper lagoon, change rooms and toilets will remain open.
For more information, visit Riverway Lagoons Safety Upgrade.
The Riverway Lagoons cover an area in size of more than three Olympic swimming pools. The lagoons are nestled among shady raintrees, with the picturesque Ross River providing a peaceful backdrop. The surrounding well established raintrees, together with the extensive overhangs of the Riverway Arts Centre roof and additional shade structures, provide a protected year-round safe swimming environment.
The two distinct lagoon areas vary in depth up to 2m. The upper lagoon is designed for more formal uses, including an area for swimming laps and specific areas for disabled and elderly access, with hand rails and suitable water levels. The lower lagoon is more relaxed and is an ideal place for the kids build sand castles and play in shallow water while the rest of the family can lounge on the timber decks in the shade.
